Live webinar: Post-school planning- things to consider and how to prepare.

Date:         Tuesday 13 September

Time:        7:00 – 8:00 pm (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra)

Are you, or a person you support, nearing the end of their school career?

The transition from high school to post-school is a significant time of change: change in routines, change to supports, and a shift in the mindset and identity of the person and their support network.

This webinar aims to help you to consider:

– what is important to me post-school?
– how does the role of the family and informal supports change post-school?
– what do I want to experience, and how do I want my post-school weeks to look?
– what evidence and reports might I need to justify the supports and funding that I require after high school finishes?
– what NDIS-specific things do I need to consider for post-school planning, such as plan length, assessments, and new routines?

Live webinar: Understanding how NDIS funding decisions are made

Date:         Tuesday 18 October

Time:        7:00 – 8:00 pm (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra)

Learn how to ‘speak NDIS’. Empower yourself to best prepare the evidence for your plan reassessment and self-advocate towards better plan outcomes.
