With good planning and goal setting, and with the help of his family and his support workers, Garth has already been able to achieve a lot but with the NDIS coming into their area, he is looking forward to the NDIS helping him achieve his goals of gaining more life skills and giving back to his community.
Christine is the mother of 16-year old Imyjen, who has a rare muscle condition known as Schwartz-Jampel syndrome. She shares some of her experience with NDIS planning and advice for other families who are transitioning to the NDIS.
Amanda from Geelong was diagnosed with MS in 1993. She always approached her diagnosis with a glass half full attitude. A couple of years ago though, she had a life changing fall. With somewhat perfect timing, she was due to leave hospital and the National Disability Insurance Scheme rolled out in her area otherwise she was looking at having to move into a nursing home. Working together with the NDIS provided easier access to her home and meant Amanda could continue living her life independently.
