Because everyone’s journey with the NDIS is different, setting goals that are suited to your individual needs is super important! After all, without solid goals in place to work toward, how will you track the progress you are making?
Part of your ‘My Goals’ section of your NDIS plan, your goals are one of the most important aspects of your plan. Not just because they define what funded supports you will have access to, but because they outline what you want to achieve.
But don’t be concerned if you find yourself struggling to write your goals down – this is totally normal. Writing goals doesn’t always come naturally for everyone. Luckily, you have access to NDIS Plan Managers, like at Disability Plan Services, whose job it is to help people set goals and make the most of their plan funds.
Plan Managers are experts in all things NDIS. We help people just like you to set SMART goals when creating your plan.
Setting SMART goals is a good way to help ensure your goals are achievable within a realistic timeframe and that they are aligned with your needs.
An example of a SMART goal for someone who wants to lose weight may be….
“I want to lose 5kg over 6 months by not eating after I’m full and exercising 5 days a week.”
When setting your goals with your Local Area Coordinator or other NDIS representative, consider our top tips to help create the best possible plan for you.
Because everyone has different goals, it’s impossible to compare yours with someone else. Where you might wish to move out of the home with friends, someone else might want to stay at home with their family but need some home modifications to help with getting around.
You have the opportunity to change or update your goals at your plan review which usually occurs every 12 or 24 months, depending on your preferences and requirements. If you think you may be on track to achieve your goals ahead of time or perhaps your circumstances have changed and you wish to amend your NDIS goals, you can request an early review.
