Working with individuals and their families requires a comprehensive approach dependent on what the goals are. There is a need with NDIS to seperate out what are the details that are needed for day to day management versus the details that are needed for educating others re what is necessary based on funding requirements. Each situation is different isn’t. Prioritising what is important for an individual for the next 6 to 12 months can be challenging. Being able to estimate what level of funding is needed isn’t a matter of simply multiplying the hours per week times the sessions per year. What happens if there are emergencies? What happens if you need additional sessions so that you can support the parents separately to the individual with the plan? Did you know this to start with? How much need do the carers have? What possible types of emergencies might occur?    The relationships between the different people involved has an impact on how much support they may require.
