Your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or NDIA Planner will contact you to arrange a time that suits you to have your planning meeting.

This meeting can take place in person or over the phone–whichever you prefer.

During your planning meeting, you will discuss what you would like to continue doing and may want to do in the future. These will be your goals. The goals you share will help us build a personalised plan for you.

A plan will usually be up to 24 months, depending on how likely your needs are to change.

NDIS key words:


Goals are things you aim to achieve with help from the NDIS and other supports and services. Your goals might include becoming more independent, getting or keeping a job, learning new skills, enrolling in education, becoming more active in your community, or improving relationships and making friends.

The links above will give an insight into the type and level of information the Participant is expected to supply when listing out the Goals they have for the Plan going forward.  It is often taken for granted that all you have to do is list them out, and list out the supports that will be used.  If only, that was true, a lot more information and thought has to go into this part of the Plan Preparation.
