Workshop – Getting Ready for the NDIS

NDS are inviting participants to come along to the following workshop specifically for people with intellectual or cognitive disability.

Getting ready for the NDIS – supporting people with intellectual and/or cognitive disability

Ensuring that all people with disability access information about the NDIS and develop skills to be able to self-direct their support when the NDIS starts in Queensland is essential.

The workshop will provide information, resources and tools for staff in their work with people with intellectual disabilities to start to explore what the NDIS means for them, develop their capacity to understand self-direction and self-management, exercise choice and control and develop skills and confidence to engage in the new system of self-directed support.

This workshop builds upon the project Plan Ahead led by Queenslanders with Disability Network Inc. (QDN). The Plan Ahead project is a series of workshops that have been co-designed and delivered by people with disability for people with intellectual disability.

This is a workshop for service providers.

About the presenters

The workshop will be co-presented by Paige Armstrong, CEO of QDN and a member of the Plan Ahead Team experienced in delivering training to other people with intellectual disability. Working together these presenters offer significant insights and learnings from an extensive background in the health and community services sector and lived experience of intellectual disability.

This workshop is part of the Sector Readiness and Workforce Capacity Initiative Non-Accredited Training for the disability sector funded by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services.
