Reviewing your plan

Your first NDIS plan is reviewed after 12 months. This is to check your plan is right for you and is continuing to work towards achieving your goals. It’s an opportunity to make any necessary changes to ensure your plan can continue to benefit you despite any possible changing circumstances.

For future NDIS plans, you may arrange a plan that can last 24 months if you feel like your needs are unlikely to change in that time.

A review will take place face-to-face or over the phone. You can bring a family member, friend or advocate to this meeting.

It is likely that your subsequent plans will be altered from your first. Plans are set up to make sure you can develop skills and gain greater independence. As you progress, your NDIS plan will need updated supports.

Your progress may result in future NDIS plans having less funding included in them. It is also possible that you may not need an NDIS plan. However, should you feel you need further support, you can contact the NDIS to discuss a new plan.

For children under seven receiving Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) support, their ECEI Coordinator will typically carry out their review.

If a child is showing positive development and their goals are being met, it is possible they may not need to continue with support from the NDIS.

Before a child turns seven years old, the ECEI Coordinator will assess whether they might be eligible to become an NDIS participant and get a plan.
