ABOUT THIS SESSION
Self-managing NDIS funding and employing one’s own supports is a very empowering way to have control. However, people may be discouraged thinking that self-management is a difficult process. This seminar offers the opportunity to hear from a parent about their NDIS journey and to find out how and why they self-manage NDIS supports. In this seminar Jan Kruger, from Canberra will cover the following topics:

  • The importance of vision and strategies for creative planning,
  • Ways you can manage your NDIS funding,
  • What is self-management?
  • Why self-manage – the pros and cons?
  • How to self-manage?  What’s involved and what you need to do?
  • Hints for planning meetings with the NDIA,
  • Employing workers – different ways,
  • Do you have to do this all on your own?
