  • Service Range: Choose providers who offer services aligned with your NDIS plan and funding categories. For example, if your plan includes physiotherapy, find providers that specialise in your specific needs. 
  • Communication Style: Find providers who communicate clearly and openly, ensuring you feel comfortable and understood. 
  • Location and Accessibility: Consider the provider’s location and accessibility – it helps if they’re local and easy for you to get to.  
  • Client Reviews and Recommendations: Read online reviews and seek recommendations from others who have used the service. This can offer valuable insights into the provider’s approach and effectiveness.

  • Disability Advocacy Organisations: Many organisations can offer guidance and support in finding suitable NDIS providers.
