To meet this need, Synapse is offering an NDIS Pre-Planning Program. The purpose of the program is to help individuals to prepare for possible entry into the NDIS. Synapse can guide you through the NDIS preparation process so you will be ready when the NDIS starts in your area. The program involves a facilitator from Synapse who will explain the NDIS to each program participant. The facilitator will then work with program participants to explore their formal and informal support needs, as well as look at goals and aspirations that contribute to living life you want to live. Synapse can then help program participants to clearly document this information in workbook format. Your individualised NDIS Pre-Planning workbook can later be supplied to an NDIS Planner to help the NDIS understand your support needs and facilitate the preparation of your first NDIS Plan. Program participants must be able to show that they are likely to be eligible for the NDIS. Still confused about how to get started on moving to the NDIS? Download our helpful NDIS Pre-planning Guide.
