Specialist Support Coordination

EXPERIENCED AND SPECIALISED SUPPORT PRACTITIONERS

Specialist support for complex situations

Specialist Support Coordination – which is similar to regular ‘Support Coordination’ – is designed to help you get the most out of your NDIS plan through the provision of specialised supports. Unlike Support Coordination, Specialist Support Coordination aims to help individuals with complex needs to access suitable supports and make informed decisions about their plans and goals under the NDIS.

If you have Specialist Support Coordination in your NDIS plan, this means you can access a higher level of support coordination that is delivered by a specialist like an Occupational Therapist, Psychologist or Social Worker. These Specialist Support Coordinators will assist you in managing specialised support activities and ensuring consistent delivery of service.

At breakthru, our friendly team of Specialist Support Coordinators will help you address complex needs, ensure your plan is up to date and assist you to better understand budgets and support options so you can achieve our goals.

Background

How can specialist support coordination help?

Specialist Support Coordination helps reduce barriers to implementing or using your NDIS plan and includes all the activities outlined in “Support Coordination”, such as helping you understand the NDIS, accessing the community, and monitoring support implementation.

Over the life of your NDIS plan, Specialist Support Coordination will aim to decrease the need for high-intensity supports by giving you the knowledge and skills to manage your own services and supports. Should you still need support to navigate your NDIS plan, the NDIA will often recommend regular Support Coordination in future reviews, rather than Specialist Support Coordination.

Each participant receiving specialist support coordination receives tailored support to implement, monitor and review their support plans and reduce the risk and complexity of their situation.
