What should you do now?
For persons living with a disability aged from 18 and under 65, the NDIS was introduced in South Australia from 1 July 2017. Participants will transition across over coming months based on where they live.
If you are already accessing services that are funded by the State Government, it is very likely that these funding arrangements will be maintained until you transition to the NDIS.
Under the NDIS you will need to have your own plan in place to enable you to access the kinds of supports you would like to receive.
We are here to support you
We will work with you to understand the NDIS, navigate you through the application process and help you to prepare for your NDIS planning meeting. Our job is to support you to get the best possible package of supports for you or your loved one.
Now is a great time to make an appointment with one of our team at scosa. Why?
- We want to get to know you, and provide you the opportunity to get to know us. The more we know about each other, the better our relationship and the greater the likelihood that we can help you to achieve your outcomes. Do you love your sport, or is gardening more your thing? Are you shy, or are you more likely to be the life of the party?
- We all have different levels of ability and associated with this, different goals and aspirations. Our role is to enable you to achieve your goals, and the more we understand about you, your talents and your aspirations, the greater our capacity to help you to reach your full potential.
- We can start to discuss ideas with you. In particular, rather than simply talk about the types of activities and programs you would like to participate in, it’s a great opportunity to think about your longer term goals and aspirations. As an example, rather than saying “I want to paint,” we might discuss the potential to for you to become an employed artist in five years’ time. Then the discussion might change to “what further skills do I need to obtain to become a professional artist.”
