Where to find support?

It can be hard to find the right people to support you, but they are out there.

If you already have a support coordinator or therapists, they can help you get onto the NDIS. Therapists are people like occupational therapists (OT), speech therapists or social workers.

You need to have a goal in your NDIS plan about moving to a new home. This will be the start of trying to get the right funding and finding people with the right experience to help you.

It helps to speak to other people with disability about who they work with and get recommendations. Or you can ask people in your team like your physio or OT too.
