CAASSA has designed and developed “My NDIS Planning Booklet” to help you think about your goals and what supports you might need now and in the future. It includes information about your life, what is important to you, your current supports, and what you like doing in the community.
“My NDIS Booklet” is for people with a disability who have become successful NDIS participants. If you recieve a letter which says you are successful in becoming an NDIS participant, The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) or a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) will contact you to organise a planning meeting. This booklet will help you prepare for this meeting. It is important to prepare as much information as possible as the NDIA or LAC will ask you lots of questions about your life and support needs to help them create your NDIS Plan. The more prepared you are for your planning meeting, the more likely your new NDIS Plan will cover all your needs.
The Booklet is available in a number of different languages including:
You can access an electronic copy of this booklet here or we can provide you with an interactive version when we meet with you. The interactive version has reusable photo stickers which might be helpful if you can’t read or write your own language or you prefer to communicate in other ways.
One of our bi-lingual support coordinators can meet with you in person to help you go through the booklet and prepare for your planning meeting. You can bring a friend or support person to your meeting if you like.
We can also attend your NDIS planning meeting if you need extra support. After your plan is approved by the NDIS, we can meet with you and provide you with a quote for any supports you would like from CAASSA.
If you choose Community Access and Services SA (CAASSA) as your service provider, we will offer you a Service Agreement. This is a document that explains all the services you will receive. We use this to make sure our service is meeting your needs.
