How to prepare for your upcoming NDIS review

As an NDIS participant, you might be familiar with the yearly review process. It's a time when your plan is assessed and changes are made to ensure that you're receiving the best possible supports. However, preparing for your review can be overwhelming, especially if it's your first time. In this article, we'll share some tips on how to prepare for your upcoming NDIS review and make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

1. Gather your paperwork

One of the first things you should do when preparing for your NDIS review is to gather all the necessary paperwork. This includes your current plan, any reports or assessments that have been done, and any other relevant documentation. Having this information organized and at hand will make it easier for you to answer any questions that may arise during the review.

2. Identify changes or challenges

The purpose of the NDIS review is to assess how well your current plan is working for you and identify any changes or challenges that may have arisen since your last plan was put in place. Before your review, take some time to reflect on your current supports and consider what is working well and what isn't. This information will be valuable in helping you and your planner make decisions about changes to your plan.

3. Think about your goals

The NDIS is designed to help you achieve your goals, and your plan should reflect this. Take some time to consider what you want to achieve over the next year and how your current supports are helping you move towards these goals. If you have any new goals or aspirations, be sure to mention them during your review.

4. Be prepared to advocate for yourself

While your planner is there to support you, ultimately, you are your best advocate. If you feel that your current plan is not meeting your needs or if you have any concerns, be sure to speak up during your review. It's important to be clear about your needs and preferences and advocate for the supports that will help you achieve your goals.

5. Consider involving a support person

If you're feeling overwhelmed or unsure about how to prepare for your NDIS review, consider involving a support person. This could be a family member, friend, or support worker who can help you gather information, provide emotional support, or attend the review meeting with you. Having someone there to help you advocate for yourself and ensure that all your needs are being met can be invaluable.

Preparing for your NDIS review can be stressful, but with some simple planning, you can make the process much easier. By gathering your paperwork, identifying changes or challenges, thinking about your goals, being prepared to advocate for yourself, and considering involving a support person, you can ensure that your review goes smoothly and that your plan reflects your needs and preferences. Remember, the NDIS is designed to support you in achieving your goals, and your review is an important part of that process.
