The time between getting accepted into the NDIS and receiving your first plan can feel like forever. This handy tip sheets examines supports available for participants whilst they wait.
Reports written by health and allied health professionals have a lot of power in the NDIS, but often the people writing them are not disability natives. This handy toolkit supports practitioners to get the best outcome for participants.
