Who is this Event for?

This course is for anyone with an NDIS Plan or their plan Nominee, family or carer. We welcome and will accommodate all disability types, but suggest that those with intellectual disability wait for our course targeted just for you (coming in August!) This current course also does not have a strong emphasis on psychosocial disability as that is currently outside of my area of expertise, though most of it will be useful and applicable, it may not meet your needs as skillfully as I’d like.

About this Event:

Topic 1: What does the law tell us? (or “I am told so many different, conflicting things! – What’s the truth!?”)

Topic 2: What is Reasonable & Necessary and Can I Buy It? And the difference between the two!

Topic 3: Plan Basics and Reviews – making the most of reviews, figuring out and giving yourself the best chance at getting what you need

Topic 4: Managing Providers – how to find and manage the supports and services you want and need to meet your goals

Topic 5: Innovation – Wild ways to uncover your goals and use your funding for awesome outcomes

Topic 6: Self Management – making it work for you – tips and tricks for those considering or have already chosen Self Management

Q and A’s – there will be time throughout the two days to ask those burning questions, so start writing them down!

The finer details:

WHAT: This course offers a rocket launch of information to help participants and families understand and make the most of the NDIS
WHO: Places are strictly limited to 20 people. Only those already with an NDIS plan should attend, as it assumes you have a plan. This course will likely not be helpful for those with no NDIS understanding.
WHERE: Online via Zoom – link and details will be sent (very easy way to videoconference – you will need a webcam and microphone – most laptops have both, or you can use an iPad/tablet or even phone)
WHEN: Wednesday 22nd July – Thursday 23rd July,  9:30am-2:30pm
COST: Cost is $590 (and no GST for those claiming from their NDIS Plans). Includes Checklists etc. This training course can be claimed from Core or capacity building support categories for Self or Plan Managed Participants (check with your Plan Manager before you commit!)
If you require a quote/invoice and/or wish to pay via bank transfer, please email to request an invocie, and we will get back to you asap. But NOTE CAREFULLY – NO places are held/confirmed until payment is received.
KEY PRESENTER: Sam Paior – Sam is Mum to two NDIS participants and leads a team of 17 Support Coordinators and Specialist Support Coordinators, manages a Facebook page packed with the latest NDIS information that gets more than 200,000 views in a month and has deep insight into the NDIS as a member of the NDIA’s Self Management Reference Group for the IAC, and is a board member of Disability Intermediaries Australia – the peak representative body for Support Coordinators and Plan Managers across Australia.  You can find out more about Sam at and listen to her talk about innovation and the NDIS at
ACCESS: Please make sure you let us know early of accessibility needs or dietary requirements.

Feedback from previous course attendees

There isn’t any – this is a new course – but much of it is based (and expanded) on the well loved NDIS Deep Dive course.
