  • What does a normal day look like?
  • What would you like to do each day?
  • How would this make things better for you?
  • How much support do you need?
  • What else do you need (equipment etc) to support your independence?
  • Do you need a Support Coordinator or Local Area Coordinator?
  • How do you want to manage your NDIS funding?
    • Self-managed - where you pay the provider directly
    • Use a Plan Manager who will pay the organisation for services that are provided
    • NDIS Managed
    • Use a combination of the above.
