The NDIS can include support coordination in your plan, which allows participants to access a support coordinator to better understand your plan and find and connect you with service providers to suit your individual needs. Not all plans include support coordination. If you think you would benefit from this type of support, it is important to ask your Local Area Coordinator about eligibility and how to apply when planning or reviewing your plan.
There are three levels of support coordination that can be included in your plan. Specialist support coordination is a higher level of support coordination. It is for people whose situations are more complex and who need specialist support. A specialist support coordinator will be a qualified and experienced practitioner such as an occupational therapist or speech pathologist to assist you to manage challenges in your support environment and ensure consistent delivery of service.
