"getting the best" out of the NDIS

25-Sep-2017"getting the best" out of the NDIS

Brain Injury Australia thought you might be interested in two workshops on "getting the best" out of the NDIS that we are offering in November.


The first workshop - developed for clinicians, allied health professionals and service providers - will deliver: the key information on the NDIS frameworks, preparation and planning processes; practical tools that can be used in pre-planning and planning work; the necessary elements of effective clinical goal-setting, assessment, planning and evidence-based interventions to support NDIS participants with a brain injury and promote their social role participation; and the skills to navigate the crucial interface between State/ Territory health-funded services and the NDIS.


The second workshop - designed for people with a brain injury, their families, carers and advocates - will provide attendees with: the essential information on the NDIS’ rules and guidelines, and how you can use them in your preparation and planning for the NDIS; the experiences of current NDIS participants with a brain injury; and guidance to commence documenting your current life circumstances and disability services as well as planning for potential NDIS-funded supports to meet goals.


Both workshops will be led by an interdisciplinary team of Professor Barry Willer from the State University of New York at Buffalo, occupational therapist Libby Callaway, Associate Professor Natasha Lannin from La Trobe University, and Sue Sloan - an occupational therapist and clinical neuropsychologist.


The first workshop will be held on Monday November 21st, the second workshop on Tuesday November 22nd, both at Royal Rehab in Ryde, Sydney.


Both workshops’ numbers are strictly limited, so register early.
