The Sections that I have learnt to look at, are sections 1 and 3.
These are a good indicator as to the amount of funding that has been allocated in each category
It is extremely important that not only the carer, family, informal supports are listed in this section. It should also mentions service providers, etc.
In a lot of instances where the funding has been significantly less than expected the description in this area for example may say “I will be supported by my family and LAC”.
The Goal description
The Goal is located directly under the titles Short Term Goal, Medium to Long Term Goal.
This describes the participants objective and/ or aspiration.
How it will be achieved
This will detail out the services, supports, low too high cost AT, plus additional information, which will enable the Participant to achieve the goal/ aspiration.
These are the steps you intend to take to achieve your Goal
How it will be supported
This will list out the variety of informal and formal supports that are going to be utilised in the achieving of the goal. Plus in some cases the anticipated outcomes.
Again you want to see more than just Family and LAC in this area.
You would like to see Service Providers, NDIS Funded Supports, etc.
