Auslan Video: Starting your First Plan

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.
