Plan reviews are a normal part of your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan. Your plan review will help you to measure your progress against your personal goals, explore new goals and identify any changes in your life.
Your plan review is the opportunity to check if your supports are working for you and are helping you to progress and achieve your goals.
It is expected that your first plan review will take place after your first 12 months in the scheme.
What gets discussed at my review?
During your plan review, you will be able to provide feedback on what supports are working for you and how you are progressing in achieving your personal goals.
You will also have the opportunity to explore and set new personal goals building on your previous achievements. In consultation with the NDIS Planner, you will be able to build in existing and new supports to achieve the goals that you have set for the new year.
How can I prepare?
Firstly it’s important to reflect on your current plan and how the supports have been effective in achieving the goals that you have set. Are the therapy or support worker hours sufficient? Do you have the equipment that you need? Are there other ways or services that you could have accessed during your plan?
You can also talk to your providers about your current plan, how your hours have been used, what your goals next year might be and what services need to be in place to achieve those goals.
Do you think you will need anything different in the next few years? Remember, you need to include all your supports and aids or equipment in your plan, no matter how small.
