NDIS Goal Setting


    NDIS Plan goals

    NDIS goals are required in order for the NDIA to approve funds and allocate them towards your child's support services.

    Your request for funds can include anything that can be linked back to your child's disability, however, you will be required to provide supporting evidence from your care providers and therapists to support these fund claim applications.

    How many goals does your NDIS Plan allow for?

    The NDIS requires two short-term goals and four medium-long term goals (and no more than a total of six goals).

    It's recommended that your short-term goals focus on the areas that require immediate support and that the medium-long term goals include future planned support areas.

    The medium-long term goals may be the same for several years as these are the areas that require ongoing attention.

    Our children's needs don't diminish or reduce as they grow older.

    Their needs change.

    Who Develops the NDIS Goals?

    Your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) can guide you on the preferred layout/structure that the NDIA need to have the goals provided, or alternatively, discuss your child's goals with your LAC and they will prepare the goals in the preferred/correct format for the NDIA for submission.

    You can request to review the goals prior to submission.

    When preparing your goals, carefully consider the areas of support you're requesting funds for as funds allocated can only be used on services that directly support your goals.
