Prepare and get ready
Once you are confirmed eligible by the NDIA and before you meet your planner, think about what you want and need.
- What support do you need to do everyday activities?
- How would you like your life to be in a few years?
- How can the NDIS help you?
Discuss these questions with your family, friends or carer, as well as Braille House.
Think about what you are doing now and what you would like to try in the future. Think about your goals and needs in the context of the following aspects of your life:
- your daily routine
- your living arrangements
- your current relationships and supports from other people
