The webinar which was hosted by Nicole Gamerov (CEO of MyCareSpace), covered 3 areas:

  • Getting Ready for your NDIS Plan
  • Understanding the difference between Plan Management and Self Management (we also compare plan management to support coordination)
  • Ongoing Success: finding and engaging providers, left over funds

NB: It's become clear that people living in rural and regional areas that are struggling to find providers, will benefit immensely from these two funding options as they give you flexibility to engage with non-NDIS registered providers

Evidence of Disability

Eligbility – age 0-65, residency and disability.

Evidence of disability can be demonstrated in 2 ways:

  1. Have your treating doctor or specialist Fill in Section F
  2. Submit existing assessments or reports (not less than 2yrs)

The NDIA have list of conditions that ‘automatically qualify’ that includes:

  • ID (moderate, severe, profound –less than 55)
  • ASD level 2 or 3
  • CP (severe, 3,4 or 5 on the GMFCS)
  • Various genetic conditions
  • SCI or brain injury
  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Amputation (2 limbs)

If you are not on the ‘priority’ list - then you have to provide evidence of the impact of the condition on your life (functional capacity) across the areas of: mobility, communication, social interaction, learning, self-care and self-management.

You will note that ASD Level 1 is not on the VIP list, so understand functional capacity and now to address it.
