NDIS lingo explained…
With the NDIS set to rollout in South Australia for adults with disability from 1st July, Orana has been providing information to people we support, families and carers in the first transition areas to ensure everyone is NDIS ready.
As with any new system, there is new lingo to learn; below are some of the words you may hear and what they mean.
Access Requirements: the criteria someone must meet to become a participant in the NDIS.
Participant: a person who meets the NDIS access requirements.
Nominee: a person who is appointed to act and make decisions for a participant who does not have a parent or guardian.
Participant Statement: information setting out a participant’s living arrangements, relationships, supports, description of day to day life as well as their short and long term goals.
Reasonable and necessary: reasonable means something that is fair and necessary means something you must have. The NDIS funds reasonable and necessary supports relating to a person’s disability to help them live an ordinary life and achieve their goals.
NDIS Plan: a written agreement worked out with the participant, stating their goals and needs, and the reasonable and necessary supports the NDIS will fund for them. Each participant has their own individual plan.
Choice and control: a participant has the right to make their own decisions about what is important to them and to decide how they would like to receive their supports and from whom.
Service Provider: someone who has products or services to help participants achieve the goals in their plan. Participants can choose their providers and change providers at any time. Orana is a registered service provider with the NDIS.
Plan Management options: You can choose how you want to manage the funded supports in your NDIS plan; NDIA managed, plan management provider, selfmanaged or a combination.
Service agreement: a contract between the participant and the service provider they have chosen to deliver the supports in their participant plan.
