  1. Put some thoughts down about your child’s participant statement. This might also include some notes on a Carers Statement. Want some help? Read our guide to writing your statement. 
  2. Map Hours of Supports- What supports/therapy are you currently receiving and what is needed in the next 12 months? Have evidence of the outcomes you have been seeing and the goals your child is working on to support this.  
  3. Evidence - Start gathering reports from specialists, therapists, school and anyone else supporting your child’s development- Look at our guide before doing/paying for these!
  4. Diarising your Daily Life – write down all supports your child uses in a typical week, then add other events that happen occasionally. Think about what works well and what could be better.
  5. Learn – from the NDIS and other relevant websites, through talks and events or support groups. Keep in mind, every child has unique needs which means unique circumstances. The NDIS is based on the individual which means everyone’s plans will look different. 
  6. Know your rights- You have the right for a review, to complain about your experience with the NDIA and with the services you access for your child.
