Your NDIS expert


Well, here’s a chance to “toot my own horn”, as they say. Toot! Ha. Jokes aside, mentoring can be a fabulous way to expand your child’s circle of support and work on skills and activities that they have an interest in. For example, under the NDIS, you can have a mentor help you with life skills, technology, education, money management and career advancement.

Let’s chat a little more about how mentoring can work nicely with smashing through NDIS goals!

1. Life Skills Maestro: Life throws its fair share of curveballs. But with a mentor, your kiddo can learn the essential skills, from communicating effectively to problem-solving, that’ll have them saying, “What curveball?”

2. Tech Guru: This digital world can be daunting, but a mentor makes it as easy as pie. They're the bridge to mastering the latest apps, devices, and online tools. No more tech tantrums!

3. Educational Wingman: Whether it's algebra, Shakespeare, or just plain study tactics, an education mentor is like that wise old owl. They offer strategies, support, and maybe a bit of wisdom from their student days.

4. Money Maven: Budgeting, saving, spending – oh my! With a financial advisor mentor, your young one will be counting dollars and making sense (and cents) of it all.

5. Social Skills Coach: Making friends, understanding cues, or just finding the right words – a social skills mentor is like a compass for the social seas, ensuring smoother sailing and deeper connections.

6. Career Pathfinder: From that first resume to climbing the ladder, a career mentor is like a trusty GPS. They highlight routes, potential pit stops, and ways to navigate the world of work.

7. Independent Living Guide: Doing laundry, cooking up a storm, or just keeping a tidy room – the journey to independent living can be thrilling with a mentor showing the ropes.

8. Community Connector: Want to dive into local clubs, events, or just be part of the community buzz? A community engagement mentor is the ticket to making those connections count.

9. Personal Growth Partner: Seeking self-improvement? A personal development mentor isn't just a guide; they're a fellow traveller, cheering on every milestone.

Having a mentor is like having a trusty compass that doesn’t just point north but points to possibilities, potential, and progress. How incredible is it that the NDIS is on board with this journey, offering avenues to foster these life-changing connections?
