Aliens are scary. The NDIS isn’t. How to prepare for your NDIS planning meeting…

Is the thought of NDIS scaring you? Is the thought of NDIS keeping you up at night? If your answer’s yes, I’m here to tell you that everything should be okay.

How do you prepare? I’ll tell you.

Start today

Where do you want to go in life? What would you like to achieve? Take a moment to really think about that.

Think big

Don’t be afraid to really think about what you’d like to do because this is your life.

Keep a diary

Are there obstacles in your day-to-day life? Write them down or even take a photo. This way, you’ll have the perfect examples to show during your meeting.

Take someone with you

You’re allowed to bring someone along to your meeting. This could be family or friend or an advocate, just someone who could assist in explaining things to the Planner.


Speak to others who’ve made the phone calls and sat through the meetings to better prepare yourself and take full advantage of NDIS.

Be specific

It’s super important that you be as specific as possible so that you’re getting exactly what you want and not something lesser.

Get paperwork done early

You’d feel so much better if the paperwork’s completed well in advance.

Don’t panic

Everything’s going to be just fine.
