A fortnight ago I had my initial NDIS planning meeting. I think it went well. I had my partner and my disability support co-ordinator attend the meeting with me. Prior to this meeting I had been jotting down things I wanted to say and ask for, so I was prepared for the conversation and questions from the planner.

The meeting took two and a half hours. I am sure I covered everything I wanted to cover. Since the meeting I have had an email from the planner to clarify a few things I said. At the meeting I did request to see her report before it was submitted for decision. The planner said she didn’t think that could be done but she would check with her manager. I insisted that I should be able to see a copy of her report to make sure it is accurate. I have since heard I can see a draft report.

So now I wait for her report.
