Your NDIS expert

Support coordination (Level 2)

As I get older, I’ve gotten better at asking for and accepting help. This parenting gig is tough! I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that. And the NDIS, well, it’s not exactly a walk in the park. But help is there. They’re called support coordinators. It’s the job of these guys to help you and your child make choices, set goals, and connect with the right services and support. Kind of like your very own NDIS fairy godmother. Who could say no to that?

So, what does a Level 2 Support Coordinator do? Think of them as your expert navigators in the NDIS universe. They're like your personal GPS, helping you chart the best course to your destination.

Here's how they can lend a hand:

1. Goal Setting: Just like setting a course for a road trip, your Support Coordinator assists you in setting NDIS goals. These goals are the destinations you and your child want to reach – be it improving communication skills, gaining independence, or enhancing daily living.

2. Planning: Ever planned a vacation? Your Support Coordinator helps create an NDIS plan tailored to your child's unique needs and aspirations. This plan is your roadmap, detailing the supports and services required to achieve those goals.

3. Connecting the Dots: Imagine a map with many stops along the way. Your Support Coordinator links you with the right service providers, therapists, and community resources. They're like your tour guide, introducing you to the best places to visit.

4. Choice and Control: The NDIS is all about empowering you and your child to make choices. Your Support Coordinator ensures you have the information and options to make informed decisions. It's like having a menu of choices at a restaurant – you pick what suits your tastes.

5. Navigating Complex Systems: The NDIS can sometimes feel like a labyrinth. Your support coordinator is your expert guide, helping you breeze through administrative mazes. They'll handle budgets, service agreements, and bookings, leaving you with peace of mind.

6. Problem Solving: Sometimes, detours happen. Your Support Coordinator is your troubleshooter, helping you navigate any bumps in the road. They work with you to find solutions and keep your journey on track.

7. Advocacy and Appeals: When roadblocks appear, your support coordinator becomes your champion. They'll speak up on your behalf, mediate disagreements, and even help you file appeals if needed. It's like having a skilled negotiator in your corner.

8. Reviewing and Monitoring: Your journey is dynamic, and so is your plan. Your support coordinator regularly checks in to make sure your plan keeps up with your changing needs and goals. Adjustments? They'll help you request them.
