00:04 Once your NDIS plan is approved, it is time to put it into action.
00:10 In this video we’ll show you how to do that, and help answer some questions about the process.
00:16 You can start your plan by yourself if you choose to self-manage your plan,
00:23 or with the support of a Local Area Coordinator, Support Coordinator
00:29 or an Early Childhood Partner.
00:32 While you may work with different people to get you started, it’s important to remember to:
00:37 1. Read and understand your Plan.
00:45 2. Register online for myGov and link to the NDIS participant portal.
01:05 3. Connect with the person who will help implement your plan.
01:10 On the NDIS website, you can also find checklists to help you get started with community,
01:17 mainstream and funded supports that will help you get the most out of your NDIS plan.
01:24 You plan will not stay fixed permanently.
01:28 You will have ongoing opportunities to review and revise your plan over time,
01:42 and YOU have control over the supports and services you receive and flexibility to manage your budget.
01:53 Your first plan is the start of a lifelong relationship with the NDIS.
