It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the Disability Support Guide

Central & Western Australia 2020/21.

A publication to help you find your way through the many different options and considerations when learning about and searching for disability support.

You may be on the search for information about disabilities or trying to find out how to access Government funding. Or you

may be looking to find local support services to help out at home, develop new skills or help you be part of the community when living with disability.

As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and confused by the enormous amount of information, as well as the long journey, from the first inkling at two and a half that ‘something wasn’t right’, to an official diagnosis just shy of his eighth birthday.

Having experienced the long road of countless visits to specialists and therapists, going through numerous assessments in search for a diagnosis, then working through all

the different support options out there and finding the best one for us while trying to

access the NDIS and preparing for our first plan, I know just how much a support guide like our Disability Support Guide can help.

The disability journey is unique to each and every person and their family and carers, and we know that everyone enters the path of information gathering and decision

making at different stages. But, for almost everyone on the disability journey, one thing is clear: navigating the maze of disability support services can be overwhelming and every situation is unique.

In a time when emotions are high and you really should be able to focus your attention on making sure you and your loved one receive the best supports possible, you

shouldn’t have to spend endless hours researching how an occupational therapist can help your child or who to contact for information about modifying your home to help you live independently.

With the knowledge that no two people face the same challenges or have the same needs, and knowing the importance of being able to find the best support for your circumstances in order to make informed choices, we have developed this Guide alongside our online resource DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au.

We have collected all the information you need in one go-to-place, explaining what is

involved and what you can expect. Amongst the information you’ll also find a handful of consumer stories from people who have travelled the road to supports before you and were willing to share their experiences.

On top of that we have included an extensive list of service providers to help you reach your goals and live your best life with the right supports in place.

So, whether you are searching for yourself, a child, a partner, parent, friend or other

loved one, on how to access Government funding, the Disability Support Guide is here to help you live your best life with the right supports and information.

And when you’re ready to share the story of your disability journey please contact me

on 08 8276 7999 or send me an email at margot.white@dps.com.au.

NDIS – National Disability Insurance Scheme


Purpose of this Guide The number of Australians living with disability under the age of 65 is growing. It is expected that the number of people receiving support from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will total 460,000. Most importantly, the NDIS gives you

more choice and control over the supports you receive.

In 2018, DPS Publishing made the decision to

apply their more than 20 years knowledge of

providing the Aged Care Guide into a State and

Territory focused guide for disability, and the launched the Disability Support Guide.

Just like the much-loved Aged Care Guide, the

Disability Support Guide is a starting point for

people with disability, their families, carers and

even service providers, no matter what stage of the journey you are at. The Australian Government is working with the

About disability support services For some people with disability life can be made easier when they have access to support. In Australia, there are lots of support options available, depending on the type of disability that you have and where you live. There is also support available to help your carer look after you or to help them when they are unable to support you because of illness or if they need to take a break.

You can read more about carer support on page 47.

Formal supports There is a large range of for-profit and

not-for-profit disability support services in

Central and Western Australia that can provide support for people with disability. These

range from smaller organisations such as local churches and community organisations to larger national operators.

Informal support One of the most commonly used types of

disability support is informal support. Any help you’re receiving from family, friends and social networks and that you’re not paying for is considered informal support.

If you are using informal support it can still

be useful to have a system in place, such as a calendar or spreadsheet, to coordinate who

helps out with what and when, to ensure you have support when you need it. 6

care, provided by experienced and trained support workers.

for disability support through Government funded services.

This can range from in home support, such

as domestic assistance, through to support in

other ways such as disability support officers to help young people navigate school and family

situations or accessing respite away from home. The Government also provides funding to

access groups that can provide social support for people with disability, their parents and carers. This can be an important aspect of

helping people with disability enjoy a fulfilling

FEATURE STORY

Jack’s story - “The label doesn’t describe how amazing he is” Dearne’s son, Jack, entered her life when she was 31 years old. As someone who was focused on her career, his birth was life changing. It also came with a massive learning curve. Jack was born with what Dearne calls a “non-optional extras package”.

Jack was born with bilateral talipes,

also known as clubfoot, and metopic craniosynostosis, a condition where part of a baby’s skull fuses together before birth.

“I have often said that Jack came to me to teach me a thing or two and oh boy,

he has and continues to teach me lots.”

Roller coaster ride Dearne says that the rollercoaster ride of navigating doctors, specialists and geneticists began “pretty much the moment he was born” for both her and Jack and that, at the time,

she was completely unaware of what was coming her way.

“In some ways, as a mother, I kind of

knew something wasn’t quite right. By

the time Jack reached his first birthday, he had had six operations, and I had learnt a lot about appreciating the little things.

“By the time Jack was

two and a half he had

endured more doctors appointments, specialist

appointments and

operations then you

could poke a stick at. “It wasn’t long

and look for the good in everything.

But this? I just didn’t know what to do, where to start, or what this meant for the future.”

“You see I had always prided myself

on being able to fix things, solve the

problem, work things out, have a plan of action and for the first time in my life I felt

milestones. The report came back to say he was severely behind in every developmental area.”

Jack was diagnosed with global

developmental delay, which was

later changed to severe intellectual

disability, a diagnosis that completely floored Dearne.

Plan for an unknown future Dealing with the impact of Jack’s

diagnosis, Dearne started to think

about the future and what this would

“So many questions and

no answers, no matter

who I asked, nobody

could tell me what the future

looked like. Little did I know I

had very little to worry about and that he would turn out to be an amazing

young man who would make me proud every day and bring me so much joy.”

Down the rabbit hole It was with the help of Google, asking questions and the help of disability

services that led Dearne to different early intervention programs.

“By the time Jack was two and a half,

he was learning sign language, reading, writing and maths. When Jack started kindy, he was ahead of the pack with his ability academically, but that was short-lived.

Types of disabilities In general, a disability is a physical, mental, cognitive or developmental condition that is likely to be permanent and limits a person’s ability to engage or take part in everyday activities or interactions. There are many different types of disabilities

and each one can affect people in different ways. There are different causes of disability. The

condition may be due to a genetic condition, the result of an injury or illness, or can be caused by complications during pregnancy or birth.

However, sometimes the reason for disability is simply unknown or can’t be determined.

The different types of disabilities can roughly

be grouped into four main categories: physical, intellectual, sensory and mental health.

Physical disabilities A physical disability involves long-term or

permanent loss of part of your body’s physical

function. It can affect your mobility, stamina or skills in performing tasks. Physical disabilities

can be genetic and the result of something that happened during pregnancy or birth or can happen as part of an illness or injury.

Physical disabilities commonly involve

impairments of the neuromusculoskeletal

system, such as amputation, accident or injury, acquired brain injury, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis,

muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, polio, respiratory disorders or spina bifida.

For more information on physical disabilities, visit DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au

Intellectual disabilities There is a wide range of intellectual disabilities

and the level of disability can vary from person to person.

Somebody with an intellectual disability

may have a reduced ability to think, learn

or communicate which poses challenges in

relationship building, education, behaviour, inclusion and employment.

Intellectual disabilities can be genetic or caused

Around one-third of Australian households include a person with disability

by complications during pregnancy or birth,

through some illnesses, exposure to alcohol and drugs or after an accident.

The most common intellectual disabilities

include autism, developmental delay, Down

syndrome, fetal alcohol spectrum syndrome and fragile x syndrome.

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21


Sensory disabilities Everyday we use our senses to understand the world around us. For someone with a sensory disability this is particularly difficult.

A sensory disability affects a person’s senses; their sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste or spacial awareness.

People with sensory disability may feel sensory input more or less intensely than other people which impacts on a person’s ability to interact in different environments and perform daily activities.

For people with sensory difficulties there are three main components:

⃝ Sensory modulation disorder is a

problem with turning sensory messages into controlled behaviour that matches the nature and intensity of the sensory

information. For example, over-reactions

to touch, movement, sounds, odours and tastes can cause discomfort, avoidance, distractibility and anxiety.

⃝ Sensory-based motor disorder is a

problem with stabilising, moving or planning a series of movements in

response to sensory demands. For

example, deficits in balance, gross motor and fine motor coordination and the

ability to perform skilled, familiar and/or novel motor actions.

⃝ Sensory discrimination disorder is a

problem with sensing similarities and differences between sensations. For

example, incorrect processing of visual or auditory input, inattentiveness, disorganisation and poor school performance.

The most common sensory disabilities include

autism, hearing impairment, sensory processing disorder and vision impairment.

For more information on sensory disabilities, visit DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au

Mental health Someone with a sensory disability may feel sensory

Understanding the NDIS The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government initiative that was established to provide all Australians aged under 65 years and living with disability, with reasonable and necessary support in their everyday life, to help them live as independently as possible. The NDIS was officially launched in 2016 after a successful three year trial period. The Scheme has been introduced to centralise disability

support and replace most State and Territory based funding. It aims to give all Australians

access to similar supports regardless of where they live.

It is set up as an ‘insurance scheme’ which means that it takes a lifetime approach by

providing people with disability, their families

and carers with funding for support needed to provide long-term outcomes.

Currently more than 390,000 people are accessing the NDIS.

Early Childhood Early Intervention Partners The Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI)

program is supporting young children who have a disability or developmental delay.

To deliver the best outcomes for children up to

the age of six the NDIA has teamed up with early childhood partners in the community to provide advice, assistance and support.

You can find contact details of LAC and ECEI partners in your State or Territory in the

‘Resources’ section starting on page 210.


Early intervention under NDIS Early intervention means addressing your child’s development, health and support needs as soon as possible. This could be through therapy, counselling, family support or special education. Providing quality early intervention for a child with a developmental delay or disability in their early years is critical to achieving the

best outcomes and reducing the likelihood of them needing ongoing supports in the

future. Effective early childhood intervention should be tailored to your child and family’s

needs and include evidence-based strategies and supports.

Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the approach that supports children

up to six years of age who have a disability or

developmental delay, is called Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI).

Early childhood partners To deliver the best outcomes for your child the

National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has teamed up with experienced early childhood partners in your local community, who will

provide assistance, advice and access to early intervention support for your child.

If your child is unlikely to have a lifelong

disability, or any long term effects are still

unclear, the ECEI partner will link your family

with mainstream supports and work with them over the short to medium-term.

They might also provide initial supports if the child needs them and monitor progress.

When your child turns seven years old they will be re-assessed to either move to an

individualised funded plan under the NDIS where a formal diagnosis is required, or

potentially transition to other Government support services.

Early intervention The early childhood journey Every child is unique, so each early childhood journey will be different. However, there are

some common steps in the process of accessing ECEI supports.

All children will go through steps one and two, but the journey from there will depend on the individual:

1.  Connect with an early childhood partner –

Through the NDIA, your own request or the

supports should:

• Be child-focused

• Be family-centred

• Be structured and supportive • Focus on quality therapy

• Include regular assessments • Build knowledge and skills

referral of your GP or Paediatrician.

2.  Get some helpful information – Your ECEI partner will help you understand your

child’s support needs and provide you with

guidance and information that will help you

make decisions about the right supports and services for your child.

3.  Discuss support needs – Your ECEI partner

will work with you to set goals for your child.

4.  Referral to supports and services – Your ECEI partner will connect you to supports and

services available in your local community, or provide some initial early intervention

supports themselves if the child needs it. 5.  Accessing the NDIS – If it is evident your

child would be best supported with an NDIS plan, your ECEI partner will work with you to request NDIS access and develop a plan.

6.  Monitor progress – Your early childhood

partner and service providers will work with you to monitor your child’s progress against the goals you’ve set.

What to look for in early intervention supports If you are seeking early intervention support for your child you may want to consider the following key points:

⃝  Is the support family-centred? Supports should actively involve and engage parents and other family members and

be tailored to your family’s circumstances and priorities.

⃝  Is the support child-focused? Supports should be delivered based on your child’s needs and goals and aim to develop specific skills.

⃝  Is it structured and supportive? Supports should be delivered in an environment where you and your child feel comfortable and they should be highly structured, well organised, consistent and predictable.

⃝  Is there quality of therapy? Supports and services should be based on

solid evidence and research and delivered by practitioners with appropriate qualifications and experience.

⃝  Will there be regular assessments? Supports should be regularly reviewed and

progress is assessed against your child’s goals and milestones to measure progress.

⃝  Does it build knowledge and skills? Supports and information provided should

build the knowledge, skills and confidence of the family and important people in your child’s life.

Preparing for a planning meeting Every NDIS plan is individualised. To make sure you get the best plan possible that suits your

needs and goals, it’s important to take the time to think about your life in the following areas:

⃝  Current supports

What formal supports are you currently receiving? Do you receive therapeutic,

behavioural or work supports? If so, how

often? If you need special equipment to go about our daily life, such as a wheelchair or communication devices, how often do you use it and will it need updating in the next

year? Have you had any modifications made

around your home, like ramps or rails and do they suit your needs?

⃝  Informal supports

What informal connections do you have and

who is important in your life at the moment? Do you currently receive any informal support from your parents, family and friends?

⃝  Current activities

What regular activities do you attend

during the week and what activities do

you do occasionally? These could include

community group activities, sports practice, art classes or volunteering. It’s important to list these no matter how big or small, and

if you do them once a week or once a year.

Also, take note of how you get to and from these activities.

⃝  Living arrangements

Where do you live and who do you live

with? Are you happy with your current living arrangements or would you like to explore other options or is your situation likely to

change in the near future. For instance, you may be living with elderly parents who are your primary carers. Will they need extra

assistance themselves or move into aged

care in the future which means they can no longer care for you?

During a planning meeting your planner will consider your current supports,

living arrangements, regular activities as well as your short and long-term goals DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21


During your planning meeting At the start of the planning meeting, your

planner will introduce themselves and outline what you will talk about in the meeting.

They will ask lots of detailed questions about

your current supports, living situation, activities and relationships, as well as your goals and

aspirations. This is why it’s important to prepare this information before your meeting so you don’t forget anything.

Together you will turn your goals into a set of actions and develop steps you need to take to achieve them. Based on the information

you provide the planner will work with you to develop your Participant Statement.

If you don’t know what goals you have for the future, that’s okay. Your first plan focuses on

what you need right now and gives you some time to think about your longer-term needs and goals.

During the meeting you’ll discuss how the

National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will be able to tell if your plan is working and how

to measure your progress. Your planner will go over the different plan management options

with you and ask how you would like to manage your funding.

Finally, you will both agree on review dates for your plan. Most plans will be reviewed after 12 months but in some cases this may be sooner.

Once your planner has all the information they need, they will write a plan of supports for

you. The plan will then be sent to the NDIA for

approval. Your planner should tell you when you can expect to receive your plan and what will happen next.

Generally, once approved, you will receive a

paper copy of your plan in the mail, along with a letter with an activation code to link your

myGov account to the NDIS Portal to manage your supports.

Once your first plan is finalised (within seven days of receiving your plan) you will be

contacted by a NDIA representative to discuss how to put it into action.

Keep in mind that whilst the planner will work with you in putting the best plan forward to

support you in reaching your goals, the decision of what type of supports and how much

funding you will receive in your actual plan lies with the NDIA.

There are professionals who can help you set

your first NDIS plan, such as plan managers and support coordinators. You’ll find them in the Advisors directory section on page 149.

Six things to bring to your planning meeting: 1.  Someone to support you

2.  Information about your life, needs and personal circumstances 3.  Your short and long-term goals

4.  Specialist reports and therapy assessments 5.  Quotes from service providers for aids and equipment

6.  Questions to ask your planner

DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au

25


Your first plan Once you receive your plan, it is important to read through it to make sure you understand everything that is included.

Your plan has three main parts: Part one contains some of your personal details, such as your name, NDIS number and other details about you.

Part two outlines your short-term and longterm goals.

Part three provides details about your supports and is broken into three sections describing the different support types.

⃝ Section 1 outlines your ‘informal supports’ that come from your family and friends.

⃝ Section 2 outlines your ‘formal supports’, such as those found in your community,

or are part of ‘mainstream’ systems, like a school, workplace or hospital.

⃝ Section 3 includes reasonable and

necessary supports funded by the NDIS,

the budget for NDIS funded supports and how supports will be paid for.

Any funding you receive from the State or

Territory Governments stops on the same day your NDIS plan starts, so it’s important to let

your service providers know when you receive your plan.

If you wish to continue receiving supports

from your current service provider under the

NDIS, you will be asked to complete a Service

Agreement. Alternatively, if you wish to change or cancel services, then your service provider can help you do this.

If you are unhappy with the plan that has been presented to you by NDIA, you can request a review within three months of receiving the plan.

Plan reviews When reviewing your plan consider: • What is working and what isn't • Strengths, challenges, interests and opportunities • What other supports are available • Your goals and targets

Plan reviews are a normal part of your NDIS

age, most plan reviews will be conducted by the

journey. A plan review is a chance to measure feedback on what supports are or aren’t

working for you, explore and set new goals, or ask any questions.

It is expected that your first plan review will take place after your first 12 months in the Scheme. Towards the end of your first year as an NDIS participant, you will be contacted about a review of your first plan.

When reviewing your plan it’s important to: ⃝ Consider which supports are working best ⃝ Identify strengths, interests, opportunities and challenges

For participants aged seven to 65 years, plan

reviews will be conducted by a LAC or a NDIS

planner either face-to-face or over the phone or by video call.

You will also have the opportunity to talk to

your representative about when to have your next plan review. Reviews can be scheduled up to two years apart depending on your personal circumstances.

If you know your situation may change in the

near future, such as moving from school to work or a change in living arrangements, you could schedule a review sooner.


You can request a plan review before the scheduled time if: Your next plan will be developed based on your

plan review conversation and formally approved by the NDIA. Your current supports will not

What support can I get? The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will fund supports that are ‘reasonable and necessary’ and that help a participant reach their goals, participate in the community and increase their independence. Support packages Funding in a NDIS plan is broken down into three different support packages.

Each package covers different areas of support

and is broken down into a number of categories:

⃝  Core – for help with everyday living    Assistance with daily living    Transport    Assistance with social and community participation

  Consumables

⃝  Capital – what aids and equipment could help make life easier To decide what supports are reasonable and necessary for you, the National Disability

What is Core support? Your Core budget is made up of supports that will help you go about your daily life while

working towards your goals and objectives. It is split into four categories and funding is flexible across all categories.

⃝ Assistance with daily living Aims to enable you to live as autonomously as possible. Includes support in the following areas:

•  Assistance with daily personal activities – such as showering, personal hygiene and moving around the house.

•  Assistance with household tasks – such as

cleaning and maintenance to help maintain your home environment.

•  Preparation and delivery of meals – covers costs for a chosen service provider to

prepare and deliver food on a weekly basis, taking your specific needs into account.

•  Assistance in shared living arrangements /

supported independent living – incorporates assistance with and/or supervising daily life tasks in a shared living environment.

Support can also include short-term

accommodation assistance such as respite care. Read more about respite on pages 75 and 121.

⃝ Transport

Support to travel around your community.

You can only get transport funding under the

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) if

you are not able to use public transport, such as a bus or train, because of your disability.

The funding can pay for transport such as a

community bus specifically for people with a disability or taxi and is paid fortnightly in

advance. The funding will not pay for a carer or

family member to drive you around to activities.

You won’t be able to move Capacity building

funding from one category to another. This is

because each category is aligned with a specific goal in your plan.

So, for example, you may have a total Capacity building budget of $5,000 made up of $3,000

for therapies under ‘Improved daily living’ and $2,000 for ‘Improved living arrangements’ to

help you find suitable rental accommodation. You then can’t decide to combine your funds to spend the total $5,000 on ‘Improved daily

living’ because that would mean you are not

working towards meeting your ‘Improved living arrangements’ goals.

You can use your Capacity building funds to purchase any approved individual support within a specific category.

For instance, if you are allocated money under the ‘Improved daily living’ budget, you may initially decide to use 50% of the funding on an occupational therapist, 30% on a

physiotherapist and 20% on a podiatrist. However, down the track you may decide to

assign a larger percentage to podiatry services

or change from occupational therapy to speech therapy. This flexibility allows you to identify

what you believe would be the best Capacity building support to achieve your goal.

Managing your plan

There’s no right or wrong way

One of the biggest decisions you and your family will need to make is how to manage your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) budget. The process of budgeting, keeping records

and paying for supports outlined in your plan is called ‘plan management’. How a budget is managed determines how your supports

and services are paid and in some cases what providers you can choose from to deliver the support services you need.

There are a few plan management options and

NDIS pricing The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to participants to purchase a range of reasonable and necessary supports to increase independence as well as social and economic participation. This funding is provided through individual

participant budgets and while participants are free to choose who they would like to deliver

services and support to them, the amount the

NDIA pays for these supports is set in the NDIS price guide.

How much do supports cost under the NDIS? The NDIS price guide lists costs for all support areas under the NDIS. These prices, unless

stated otherwise, are the maximum amount NDIS registered providers can charge for that service.

A key element of NDIS is that funded supports must represent value for money. As the

number of participants and providers changes each year, competition may change and this

could drive prices up or down. The NDIS price

guide should ensure that all costs are kept at a reasonable level.

Registered vs unregistered providers Service providers are businesses or individuals who provide a service that relates to the goals outlined in a NDIS plan. The NDIA asks service

The price guide breaks down each support item

To register, providers must meet certain criteria

with a description, reference number, whether hourly, daily or weekly.

For example, for assistance with personal domestic activities such as getting help

with basic house or garden maintenance,

the NDIS will pay up to $49.30 per hour. For

support connection, to help you coordinate your supports from a range of sources, or

to engage services to help you find suitable accommodation, NDIS will pay up to $61.76 per hour.

The NDIA will update prices at least once a year, usually by 1 July, taking into account

market trends, changes in costs and wage rates. Changes will be published on ndis.gov.au.

not all providers do.

and follow specific rules, regulations and agreements when providing services.

NDIS registration can be a lengthy and costly

process, and because of this some businesses choose to stay unregistered.

Others may choose not to register so they won’t be limited by the NDIS price guide when they charge for their services.

Don’t be put off by the term ‘unregistered’ when it comes to choosing supports.

A key element of the NDIS is that funded

supports must represent ‘value for money’

Unregistered providers can still provide NDIS-

funded supports, and many have the necessary skills and resources to provide high-quality services to people with disability.

If you are

self-managed The main differences between registered and unregistered providers are:

⃝ Unregistered providers do not need to

follow the price caps outlined in the NDIS

price guide and can charge whatever they like, whereas registered providers cannot charge over the price limit.

⃝ Registered providers claim their invoices directly through the NDIS, while

unregistered providers will send their

invoices to you, or whoever is managing your plan, to process through the NDIS portal.

You can choose the type of providers you use, depending on how you manage your plan. If

you are agency managed and can only choose

registered providers, it’s good to know they’ve

all been through the registration process and

meet NDIA guidelines. However, choosing from a set list of providers can be restrictive.

For example, if you need an occupational

therapist but there are none registered in your area, you might need to travel a long way to access this support. Or, the local registered

occupational therapist might be at capacity and not currently taking on new clients.

have the freedom of choosing any provider you want. However, you may pay more for supports with an unregistered provider as they aren’t bound by the NDIS price guide.

Service Agreements When you have found a provider to deliver your NDIS supports, you will need to enter into a

Financial support The Government has a range of other financial assistance schemes to support people with disability, for example to cover the cost of living including rent or mortgage repayments, groceries, utilities, transport and other miscellaneous costs.

Education In Australia, every child has the right to the same educational opportunities. People with disability may have barriers in learning, development and cognitive function, however, there are a number of education supports that can help your child reach their full potential. Schooling options In some schools, children with disability are

in regular classes, whereas in others, children

with disability have some extra support lessons together in a group.

There are also Government funded special support school programs, complete

with their own staff and facilities within mainstream schools.

Dual enrolment is an option for parents who

believe their child may benefit by splitting up their week between two schools.

If your child has medical, personal care or

behavioural support needs, the school can

assist your child in making them feel included and comfortable in the school environment.

Employment and volunteering options A key goal of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is to promote employment of people with disability. Financial independence, improved health and wellbeing, building social networks and finding a sense of purpose are just some of the benefits of having a paid or unpaid job. Building capacity and economic participation

reduces the need for full-time support and day programs, giving family members and carers

more time to participate in the community or work in their own job.

If you have a disability and want to work, there are a few avenues you can take.

Disability Employment Services Disability Employment Services (DES) can help you find and maintain work in a mainstream environment, known as open employment.

DES is not funded under the NDIS but by the Department of Social Services.

There are two separate sub-programs within DES. These are:

1. Employment Support Services for job seekers with permanent disability and an assessed need for regular, ongoing support in the workplace.

2. D isability Management Services for job seekers with disability, injury or health

conditions who are not expected to need

long-term support in the workplace but may need irregular flexible support to keep a job. DES can help with the preparation for work through training in specific job skills, allied

Supported employment at an ADE is funded by the NDIS under the support category ‘Finding and keeping a job’.

Under the NDIS, ADEs can help you to gain

training and experience to either transition into open employment or continue in supported employment if you prefer.

Over 170 ADEs currently employ more than 20,000 Australians with varying degrees of

disability who are not currently able to work without support.

Disability advocates Supporting your rights There may be times when you don’t feel listened to or feel like decisions are being made for you without any consideration of your thoughts, feelings or opinion. This is where disability advocates can play a vital role. When a problem arises it can be hard to speak up and take control of how you want to live

your life. This can be particularly difficult if the concerns you have are about care or services

An advocate can enable and support you by helping you understand your rights, listen to your concerns and discuss your options for raising those concerns

that you are relying on for meeting your most basic needs.

Many people find it difficult to raise a complaint or concern but it is important to address your concerns early and not leave it to escalate.

This is where a disability advocate can play an important role.

people with disability by campaigning for social change, equal rights and opportunity. This can include speaking, acting or writing on behalf of the interests of a person or group in order

to protect, promote and defend their welfare or justice.

An advocate can enable and support you by helping you understand your rights, listen to your concerns and discuss your options

for raising that concern. They can assist with

negotiating changes to your plan, give advice and support when dealing with service

providers and help you overcome any barriers

that may impact on your ability to participate in your community.

There are a number of different types of advocacy, each with a different focus. The six advocacy types are: ⃝ Citizen advocacy – aligns you with

volunteers who become loyal supporters and campaign for your rights.

⃝ Family advocacy – helps family members of people with disability to advocate on behalf of their loved one.

⃝ Individual advocacy – works with

individuals on eliminating discrimination, abuse and neglect.

⃝ Legal advocacy – maintains your rights by addressing the legalities of discrimination, abuse and neglect.

⃝ Systemic advocacy – reduces barriers and discrimination you may face.

⃝ Self advocacy – supports you in

advocating for yourself, or as a group.

The Australian Government’s National

Disability Advocacy Program (NDAP) is a

program that ensures people with disability

enjoy and exercise their human rights within their community.

The program enables access to local disability

advocacy support and helps smooth out issues

between people with disability and their service providers or the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

To find a Government funded disability

advocacy agency near you, search your local area on the Department of Social

Services’ Disability Advocacy Finder, visit disabilityadvocacyfinder.dss.gov.au or email disabilityadvocacy@dss.gov.au

Carer support Families and carers of people with disability provide everyday help and support that cannot be beaten! Roughly 2.7 million Australians look after someone with disability, mental illness, a medical condition or the elderly. Being a carer can have a huge impact on your

life and physical and mental wellbeing – as well

as being isolating at times. There are some great support options available to assist you if and when the role of a carer becomes too much.

The Government initiative Carer Gateway is a Australia-wide network that connects carers with support services around the country.

Call Carer Gateway on 1800 422 737 or visit

CarerGateway.gov.au to connect with local

support and services to help you with your caring role.

Counselling services

Professional counselling is held in individual, couple or family sessions. Some counsellors

offer their services over the phone, by email

or through webcam. It is a great way to talk to

someone about how you are feeling and learn some strategies to help you cope in a private and trusted environment.

If you feel more comfortable having a one-on-

one session or involving other family members, counselling is a good option for you.

Therapeutic counselling groups are specifically designed to provide carers with emotional support, the opportunity to connect with

other carers and share experiences, as well as practical strategies to help you in your carer

role. These groups meet regularly and promote

an understanding and supportive environment. Attending a counselling or therapy group

is a good way to share your experiences

and feelings with like-minded people and is important in proving you are not alone. You can learn a lot from other people in similar

situations, build a support network and make some new friends.

INTEGRATED CARER SUPPORT SERVICES FROM LIFE WITHOUT BARRIERS In partnership with Carers SA, Life Without Barriers now offers a range of tailored support services for carers to help reduce the strain of caring. Supports are available to anyone who provides care to an individual experiencing disability, mental illness, drug or alcohol misuse or is frail and aged.

Carer support groups

Community run carer support groups can offer a safe and understanding environment to talk about your caring role. These groups can be organised around caring for someone with

a particular disability or condition and offer the support and advice of other carers who

are or have experienced situations similar to

yours. There are also support groups available for Indigenous Australians or Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) carers.

Carer support groups are completely

confidential and can provide practical and emotional support and also help you to: ⃝ Discover new information ⃝ Attend education or training workshops ⃝ Get involved in leisure activities and relaxing outings.

Support is available to help you live your life as independently as possible by making sure that your living arrangements and the help you get at home meets your needs. These supports may include helping you find affordable, appropriate and secure housing, or assist you with transport and day-to-day activities. It will also ensure you can stay connected and part of your local community.

Depending on your needs, you may be able to get assistance with personal care or have someone come to your house and help you with cooking or cleaning.

Or, rather than have someone do the tasks for you, you may be able to learn new skills through supports that are available so you can do these jobs yourself and keep your independence as well.

If you are being cared for by a family member or a carer, another form of support

Child care

For many parents finding the right child care for their child is a struggle at the best of times. For parents of a child with a disability, this is even more so.

While you have access to the full range of child care providers, your child may require more care and support than other children, which can present some

challenges when it comes to choosing the right provider for you and your family. You can search child care options in your local area through the Government’s My Child website mychild.gov.au. Here, you can find options for:

⃝ Long Day Care – centre-based child care while parents work or are busy with other commitments

⃝ Occasional Care – flexible, centre-based child care as needed

⃝ Family Day Care – affordable, personalised care by a qualified educator in small groups in a home-based setting

⃝ In Home Care – flexible child care provided by a qualified educator in the comfort of your home

⃝ Vacation Care – programs that care for primary school aged children during school holidays

⃝ Before and After School Care – centre-based child care outside school hours When contacting child care providers it is important to discuss your child’s needs

and ask questions including their experience in caring for children with disability. Child care can be expensive and the Government may help cover some of the

costs. To get an estimate of what you may be entitled to, use the Services Australia Payment and Service finder on servicesaustralia.gov.au or call 13 61 50.

Gaining confidence and support for the future After a struggling start, finding the right support made all the difference for Dylan and his family, helping to overcome his challenges and build independence and confidence. For Dylan and his grandparents, finding a provider that was able to both recognise what he needed help with and help him overcome any issues, was essential. Born three months early, Dylan lives with mild cerebral palsy and an acquired brain injury. Dylan was placed with his grandparents when he was eight months old, because both his parents also live with disability and were unable to look after him. Despite this, Dylan had constant contact with his parents while growing up, and eleven years ago, he reconnected with his sisters.

Dylan’s grandmother Beverly explains that she had to fight for Dylan throughout his time at school. “With education, Dylan had a terrible time, and we ended up needing to home school him to support him.”

“He has

now to go by himself.”

“He has a black belt in Taekwondo. He has also been involved in quite a few clubs who have been very understanding. He has won a lot of gold medals for his sporting achievements.”

Growing up, Dylan received support from Novita, but he ‘aged’ out of their support services when he turned eighteen.

This is when the struggle to fund support for Dylan began. “We were contacted by someone from the NDIS so that Dylan could get it,” Beverly explains. “We got funds, and then we were told that you look on the portal and

Finding disability service provider Spry Support Services was a turning point for Beverly and Dylan.

Gaining confidence

Spry supports children and adults with sensory, intellectual, neurological, physical and psychiatric disabilities. Beverly says that when she first contacted Spry, they made sure to find out what Dylan needed. “They were very prompt, they came down and sat and talked to us about Dylan’s problems, [they also] talked with Dylan, and then they worked out the sort of things that he seemed to need help with.” Over the last two to three years Dylan has benefited from the support offered by Spry. Their services meant he could access support while attending a TAFE course by providing someone to go with him and help with taking notes,

as his cerebral palsy means that he is unable to himself. Dylan now works in horticulture and Spry has organised for Dylan to be dropped off to and picked up from work.

Dylan’s mentor is only five years older than Dylan, and they get on quite well, she says.

This support can range anywhere from a few hours a week, to 24 hours a day and can help develop skills and build your confidence with things like health

and wellbeing, household tasks, travel and connecting with other people and the community.

Some important life skills that you can get support for include meal preparation, independent living, community participation and literacy and numeracy skills.

To become as independent as possible and fulfil your potential speak to your carer or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) about life skills support under the NDIS.

Turn to page 60 for a list of providers who can help you develop life skills.

Meals and shopping Cooking meals and heading to the shops for groceries or other purchases can

prove difficult if you have a disability. To assist you, support workers can help you decide what items you need and then accompany you to go and buy them.

Some service providers can go to the supermarkets on your behalf and prepare nutritious meals according to your tastes and budget.

When it comes to food preparation you can have the support worker prepare your meal or you can help and learn some cooking skills yourself.

If you need help with meals and shopping, speak to your carer or Local Area Coordinator to see if a support service can be included in your NDIS plan.

A list of providers offering these services can be found in the directory starting on page 60.

Multicultural support If you identify as Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) and need some support, there are multicultural services available to meet your needs.

Getting support in a language you understand The ability to understand what is happening when it comes to accessing support services is often taken for granted. For one family, being supported in their native language, changed their world. Being able to connect with support services, understand the language, and connect with people from similar cultural backgrounds was important for John and his mother, Winnie, when accessing support in their home state of Western Australia. John was born in Malaysia, and was a happy and healthy baby. Winnie says there didn’t appear to be anything for her to be concerned about. However, by the age of four or five, John was still not able to talk, and Winnie’s brother suggested that they visit a doctor. Winnie says, “We took our son to Singapore for a medical check-up. Despite having a MRI scan, the doctor could not determine any developmental abnormality in our son’s brain.” “But he had two blocked ears so he couldn’t hear. The doctor said that we should check to see if there is a hearing problem or not.

“John then had to undergo a procedure to remove the ear crystals.”

Moving to Australia

Even though there were challenges, John made small improvements, however he still wasn’t talking.

“When he went to primary school, he still couldn’t talk. After about a year [of school] he could call us ‘daddy and mummy’ and could talk a little bit.” The family then decided to migrate from Malaysia to Australia where John would have to learn to speak English. In Australia, John once more was checked over by a doctor before starting school. This doctor also couldn’t find anything of concern. School in Australia was a challenge for John. At home, his family would speak Mandarin, and at school he would be taught in English. “I think because of language differences, we spoke Mandarin at home, he couldn’t understand properly, so he started misbehaving,” Winnie explains. John would have meltdowns or get angry and his behaviour would escalate. This eventually meant that he needed to change schools more than once. The frequent changes contributed to John’s challenging behaviours as he found it difficult to cope with the changes. John’s parents were struggling to find a suitable school in Perth so they decided to take John back to Malaysia.

Having access to support in his native language has

After returning to Perth, the family was recommended to see a specialist, who once more assessed John. The specialist noticed that when talking, John would often repeat words. The specialist diagnosed John with mild autism, which came as a shock to the family. “It was a very difficult time because he was screaming and getting upset. It was very hard for the family.” John was able to complete year 12 in Australia and through an employment program was able to find a job at Commonwealth Bank where he worked for 10 years. John has since moved forward and now has a position at Spotless.

A language we understand

John’s diagnosis meant that he was eligible for Government funded programs for individuals with disability. John was connected with a disability service provider for individual social support where a support worker would come and take him out every week. However, John eventually lost interest and ceased this support service. His parents soon found John’s behaviours starting to escalate again and his parents found it extremely difficult to manage. John was later seen by a behavioural support team from the Department of Communities Disability.

Regulating emotions

The team put in place a behavioural plan for John and his family so they could learn how to manage and deescalate John’s challenging behaviours. John and his parents also attended counselling sessions with a behavioural therapist to both have a better

understanding of why John reacts in a certain way and learn how John can regulate his emotions. Winnie found that after attending these sessions, John started to accept change more easily whereas in the past, John would not cope well if there was a slight change at work. Despite the existing support, John’s parents were still hoping to find a service provider that could offer the day-to-day assistance and communication in their native language. Understanding the parents’ wish as well as John’s needs for social and independent skills, John’s local area coordinator quickly contacted Chung Wah Community & Aged Care. Chung Wah Community and Aged Care (CAC) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals from diverse backgrounds, especially non-English speaking backgrounds.

The organisation offered Winnie and John the support they needed in a language they could both understand and were confident in speaking.

Significant improvement

“Because of the language [barrier] we couldn’t go to find other people, so we were under local coordination.” With the supports made available through Chung Wah CAC, John has made significant improvements, including going out and about in Perth. For Winnie, the fact that Chung Wah CAC offers support workers who speak Mandarin is also really helpful.

Now he can communicate with a lot of people and is very happy working. “We now know how to calm him. I think being older, he is also more understanding and is more settled,” says Winnie. From a boy who struggled to understand himself, John has become one of Chung Wah CAC’s favourite individuals who always brings the brightest smiles to the centre every time he comes.

Sports, social and recreational support

Being involved and active within your local community is good for your health

and wellbeing and can be made easier with additional supports that are available

to you.

Support for sport, social and recreational activities can include having someone

help you find activities you will enjoy, organising a companion to join you on your

activity, having access to specialised sporting equipment, help with changing into sports clothes and assistance in manipulating equipment.

These supports allow you to participate in sports, social and recreational activities within your community.

Some sports, social and recreation activities may be tailored to suit you and your

disability, or you may be able to access some disability-specific activities organised through disability service providers. You may even be interested in participating in other ways, such as cheering or providing on-field support.

To help you participate in sports, social and recreation activities available in your

area, specialised or modified sporting equipment, transport and personal support can be made available.

Some activities you may enjoy include outings to the movies or shopping centre, going to the park, cooking classes, art and craft classes, bowling, going to the beach, swimming, attending a sporting game, catching up with friends and attending community events.

Youth groups and holiday camps are regular activities enjoyed by many people. Trained support workers attend these outings to ensure you are comfortable and safe.

If you want to participate in social and recreational activities, speak to your carer or Local Area Coordinator about your options under the NDIS.

Turn to page 60 to find sports, social and recreational options.

Transport

If you need some help to get from one place to the next, transport supports are

available to make your life easier. Being able to attend appointments, education, work and social activities are an important and essential part of your wellbeing.

A support worker can drive you to and from where you want to go, however, there are a lot of other transport support options. These will be included in your NDIS plan if you cannot use public transport because of your disability.

Subsidised taxi vouchers are available if you have a significant disability or use a wheelchair to help cover the costs of fares.

You can apply for a Companion Card which will allow your companion, such as a

carer, family member, friend or partner to join you at events, venues and on public transport for free.

Some community transport services offer community buses for people with

disability and these are a great option if you are looking for social activities as they often organise day trips to places like the zoo.

For more information about the Companion Card or transport options under the NDIS turn to pages 44-45.

Discover transport support providers within the In Home & Community Support directory starting on page 60. 58

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21


Travel and holidays Going on holiday and traveling to new places can be fantastic and relaxing, but

it can also be a logistical nightmare for people with disability to make sure all the While difficult, it is definitely not impossible. And better yet, there are many

services available providing accessible tourism or ways to foolproof your travel. If you are intending to organise your own trip, there are some considerations to

take into account. Other cities and countries aren’t always made with accessibility in mind.

⃝  Even if places, tourist sites, accommodation or travel groups say they are accessible, it is a good idea to call ahead and make sure they can

accommodate you. It provides more time for the organisation to prepare for your arrival, and you can be very specific about your disability and how you need to be supported.

⃝  Share details about your trip with your doctor and see if they raise concerns about any items on your itinerary. It might be a good idea to reassess how

you can reach your ideal holiday goals without completely crossing it off your bucket list or putting yourself in danger.

⃝  It is a good idea to carry detailed information about your medication and

disability, signed by a doctor. So if you do run into trouble, you have proper documentation with you if you need quick access to it.

⃝  If you are bringing medication along, bring a couple weeks worth more than normal, just in case of a flight delay or any unexpected hiccups in your trip.

⃝  When travelling to another country, look into any rules or requirements of

the country and whether that can affect your travel. For instance, Indonesia is extremely strict on medication and what you can bring in. Talk to your pharmacist as they may be able to provide you with documentation indicating the importance of the medication.

Any trip away, but in particular if you travel abroad, requires research ahead for

anything that may cause problems on your holiday. An accessible holiday provider can provide that assurance that where you travel will be accessible, no matter the disability type.

Depending on what exactly you want, there are travel companion organisations to assist you on the actual holiday, or travel planning businesses that can create your ideal holiday that is accessible physically, socially and mentally.

Some providers have pre-made holiday categories that you can choose from

depending on the level of care required. Generally, holiday providers have staff ratios if the trip is a group booking.

In Home & Community Support

supports you need are in place.

If you want to travel alone, a travel organiser can tailor your trip around your capabilities. This could include flights, accessible accommodation, suitable transport, itinerary, activities and travel insurance.

Depending on your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) package, you may be able to receive funding from the Government to help you travel.

Lastly, enjoy yourself. The whole point of a trip is to relax. Good planning is one way to achieve an even better holiday for yourself or the whole family.

Visit DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au for more information about accessible travel or to find providers who can assist.

Therapists & Specialists

About Therapists & Specialists Living with a disability can be challenging but there are a wide range of therapies and supports available to help make life easier for you. By having access to therapy or specialised support sessions you may be able to maintain or regain independence, manage behaviours or look after your mental wellbeing. For instance, you may need the services of a physiotherapist to help with

movement, a speech therapist to help with communication or swallowing issues or a nutritionist to advise you on your diet. Occupational therapists can give

recommendations for equipment specific to your needs and other specialists can assist with teaching you life skills or help with self expression.

The best therapy or support depends on your disability, what your needs are and what challenges you’re looking to overcome.

Regaining independence and back to enjoying life

Getting the right support and making small changes to everyday living can mean the difference between an isolated life full of struggles and the road to independence. For Paul, finding a provider that was able to recognise exactly what he needed help with and helping him overcome these issues has been key to get his independence back, be part of the community again and enjoy life. Paul was born as one of nine children and lives with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, which has affected his right upper and lower limbs and spine. “When I was young, my Mum and Dad treated me just like the other kids in the family. I had to try to do things for myself. “At about age four, I could no longer walk and was reliant on a wheelchair. I have been dependent on a wheelchair ever since.” Now 64 and living alone, Paul has found he needs more support to help him get around.

“I live on my own in my family home. I lived with my parents in this home until they passed away, then my brother lived with me. He has also passed away, and now I live alone.

Unable to get around

Paul used to use his scooter to get out and around. He would ride around with a stereo attached to it so that he could play music as he went about his day. But over time Paul’s physical abilities declined which had a big impact on his independence.

“My left shoulder had become painful, and Tracie helped me to understand how much pressure I was putting [on] my shoulder when I was transferring from my wheelchair, into bed and onto the toilet.

as independent

“As I get older, my physical abilities have gotten worse. My body is buggered, I experience back pain, and my left shoulder is worn out from doing all of the work. I cannot use my right upper limb, so my left arm has done a lot of work over the years.”

as possible.”

“I have felt a lot more isolated in the last couple of years because I lost the ability to transfer onto my scooter/ gopher and so can no longer go out by myself.”

Finding support

It was Paul’s sister who made contact with Living to the Max Occupational Therapy, a South Australian Occupational Therapy Service, 18 months ago because he was having trouble getting onto his scooter.

“When Tracie came to visit me for the first time, really all I had received was a bathroom modification to make showering easier for me and my support staff.

“I like to be

Because of his inability to get around, Paul started feeling more and more isolated.

Getting access to funding and support has been life-changing for Paul.  Photo: supplied

Paul says that Tracie and Living to the Max are helping him gain his independence back and have already introduced changes to his life.

The organisation connected Paul with Occupational Therapist (OT) Tracie McInnes, who could clearly see he was struggling with day to day life.

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21

“She raised a lot of concerns that needed to be addressed, and now I have NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) funding to be able to support my needs a lot better. “I now have more support hours, so I can have a carer attend to help me get out of bed, make fresh meals and then to transfer into bed at night,” Paul continues.

“I like to be as independent as possible, and so we have looked at ways to improve my safety to transfer on and off the toilet during the day. I now have a ceiling hoist lifter to transfer in and out of bed, to help protect my shoulder and preserve my function.”

An education process

Tracie explains that the process of informing Paul about available support has been an education process. “It’s [been about] making Paul understand that there is so much available to help him. “[It’s] now our job to make sure he gets the equipment and support that he needs.


ADVERTISING FEATURE

We’ve been able to demonstrate to the NDIS what his real needs are.” Tracie, and Living to the Max, have also helped Paul access funding to keep his garden tidy and for some essential home maintenance to be done, which Paul is grateful for. “We have also looked at re-orientating my bedroom, so there is more clear access for my equipment, lowering light switches in my home so I can reach them more easily and moving my TV on the wall, so I can still watch TV in bed,” Paul adds.

Life-changing

They may be small changes and insignificant to some but for Paul they have been life-changing and he is grateful for the ongoing support. “Tracie and I have a joke and a laugh, and I am always grateful for everything she has helped me with. She really cares about me and is doing everything she can to make things easier for me at home, but she is also working hard to give me back my independence so I can go out into the community and have fun. Tracie is a beautiful person to work with. She has done so much for me.”

“I am grateful

for everything

Tracie has helped me with.”

“Tracie has also applied for a door automation system to my front door, as she was concerned that I was leaving the door open when I was expecting someone. “I have struggled along and managed for many years, but now I am older, things are getting harder.

Out and about once more One of the biggest things Paul is looking forward to is receiving his new ‘wheels’.

“With Tracie’s support, I have a powered wheelchair that has been approved, and I am waiting for it to arrive”. Looking forward to being out and about again, Paul has one requirement for the new wheelchair, adding that they “need to make sure music is put on the new wheelchair as well, one way or the other”. “I can’t wait to receive the powered wheelchair, so I can go out again to the shops or to the bank or just to go out on the street and have a chat with people.”

If you are caring for a loved one with a disability, you or other members of your

family may also be entitled to receive support to help you in your caring role. This may be something general such as learning first aid skills, or it could be more

specialised to the needs of the person with disability; for example, learning sign language or how to manage behaviours associated with autism.

On the following pages we explain what different therapists and specialists do and how they can help you. The Therapists & Specialists directory starting on

page 102 lists providers that deliver services in Central and Western Australia.

Therapists & Specialists

Behavioural support

Behavioural support, or therapy, is used to treat a range of health conditions and

disabilities. The therapy focuses on changing current, unhealthy or self-destructive behavioural problems or teaching you what is appropriate, socially acceptable

behaviour. To do this, the behavioural therapist will try to understand why you are behaving this way and will develop strategies to support you.

This therapy can be used to treat depression, anxiety, anger issues and panic

disorders. Conditions such as autism, ADD/ADHD and psychosocial disorders like PTSD, bipolar and OCD can also benefit from behavioural therapy. There are four types of behavioural therapy: 1. Cognitive behavioural therapy focuses on how thoughts and beliefs can influence your actions and moods and how to change this.

2. Cognitive behavioural play therapy is commonly used with children to gain insight into what a child is uncomfortable expressing or unable to express.

3. System desensitisation is used to treat phobias where people are taught to replace a fear response with a relaxation response.

4. Aversion therapy is often used to treat substance abuse by teaching

people to associate a stimulus that they find desirable, with an extremely unpleasant stimulus.

Behavioural therapy is considered extremely effective, with about 75% of people undergoing cognitive behavioural therapy experiencing some benefits from the treatment.

Turn to the Therapists & Specialists Directory on page 102 to find providers that offer behavioural support.

Dietitians/Nutritionists

Seeking advice from a dietitian or nutritionist can benefit the general health

and nutritional wellbeing of people with disability. A qualified nutritionist can

provide a range of evidence-based nutrition services, including advice on food

and nutrition and how it impacts on health. A dietitian can additionally provide individual and group dietary counselling, medical nutrition therapy and food service management.

A dietitian or nutritionist may provide recommendations to help you maintain

a healthy weight or manage your condition through a healthy diet. If you are a

wheelchair user, a nutrition plan may play an important role in managing your condition, especially if you require a specialised diet.

A dietitian may also work alongside a speech therapist to help you overcome swallowing difficulties or food phobias.

You can find a dietitian or nutritionist near you in the Therapists & Specialists directory starting on page 102.

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21


Early intervention The social, emotional and physical development of your child will affect how they mature and how their abilities develop in later life. If your child has a

developmental delay or disability, it is important they receive quality support to

improve and develop skills to participate in daily activities and enable them to be the best they can be in adult life.

Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), children under the age

of seven years old can access early childhood intervention supports to maximise There are also supports available if you are the parent, carer or family member of a child with developmental delay or a disability to help you in your daily life.

You can read more about early intervention under the NDIS on page 21 and

find providers in the Therapists & Specialists directory starting on page 102.

Professionals Specially trained medical and therapeutic professionals can assist in lots of

different ways to help manage your disability and improve your life. They can

provide services to help you communicate or gain strength to move, they may

help with pain management or overcoming psychological issues associated with your disability.

The techniques they use also vary. Some therapies are physical and can

involve water or use specialist equipment like balance equipment or play

therapy equipment such as swings. Other therapies such as speech therapy or occupational therapy may use games or toys.

A lot of specialists practice from a hospital or clinic, however, some specialists can come to your home to provide their services. Certain therapies may be offered in the community as well. For example, some therapists such as speech and

occupational therapists can visit your child at their school for regular sessions which minimises the impact of missed classes.

Occupational therapists

Occupational therapists (OTs) help people of all ages gain or regain their confidence and independence in everyday life.

They can assist you in making everyday activities easier, such as self-care, home

maintenance, driving, shopping, mobility, education, social participation, leisure

and play, employment and volunteer activities.

OTs may recommend technological and environmental modifications such as aids and equipment, vehicle modifications and home modifications.

OTs play an important role in the disability sector, as they often help in injury

rehabilitation, progressive conditions and disabilities that affect a person’s ability to manage in daily life.

They can help people with brain or spinal injuries relearn activities or determine

new ways of accomplishing them. They can also help children with autism regulate their behaviour, help develop low muscle tone, improve concentration for learning and help children become aware of their bodies and spatial awareness.

Early intervention is the key to building confidence For children living with autism, receiving the right kind of support gives them the opportunity to learn the skills they need to achieve and succeed in life. Western Australian disability service provider Autism Alliance, provides many children with the support they need, through a range of services including speech pathology, occupational therapy, social skills groups and parent/carer training. For Kai, who was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in 2014, finding the right service provider has been “good news” according to his father Ben. Ben explains that they worked with almost every service provider in Perth, until they eventually found Autism Alliance. “Having Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy with Autism Alliance has made a big difference to Kai’s everyday life,” Ben says.

“The therapy service is always conducted with great care for Kai’s special needs in both short-term and long-term goals.”

The right fit

Autism Alliance is also supporting George and Melissa’s son Jet as a part of his early intervention for autism. It took a lot of time and effort understanding their options and looking for the best provider for their son, before Melissa found the right support for her son at Autism Alliance. “Once we received Jet’s diagnosis, we started researching and visiting several different therapy providers in the Perth area.

Autism Alliance has also helped Jet with his sensory sensitivities, some he has outgrown over the years and some are still a work in progress, his mum adds.

Unique skill set

Heather Ioppolo, Director of Autism Alliance, says that when it comes to meeting a child or adult with a diagnosis of ASD, there is often a saying of “once you’ve met someone with Autism, you’ve met one person with Autism”. She adds that at Autism Alliance, they make sure that each child’s unique skill set and challenges are embraced.

“Our son has

Jet’s parents say their son has grown in confidence through having the right support, and they couldn’t be more thankful. “During his time [with Autism Alliance], our son has developed into a much more communicative, capable and confident little boy. “At the time of diagnosis, Jet was nonverbal and obviously struggled with communicating his needs to us. Now he talks and won’t stop talking.” Thanks to the right supports Jet’s future is bright Photos: Supplied

Autism Alliance offers a number of different therapies to make sure that children are given the best opportunity to succeed; one of these supports is Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) therapy. ABA therapy involves teaching skills like communication, self-care and play skills in a systematic manner.


ADVERTISING FEATURE

“Heather has done an outstanding job as our son’s ABA therapist. We find our son much more compliant, engaged and social and really appreciate the encouraging, respectful and tailored way Heather teaches.

A huge difference

George and Melissa were quickly able to see the benefits of not only ABA therapy but also the other supports offered by Autism Alliance like occupational therapy and speech therapy. “Attending ABA therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and Social Skills Groups at Autism Alliance on a weekly basis has made a huge difference in how quickly we have been able to see improvement in the areas that are challenging for our son,” they say.

“Siobhan has also done an excellent job as our son’s occupational therapist. Siobhan has helped our son to overcome several sensory challenges and improved our son’s fine and gross motor skills using fun activities.

“Social Skills Groups and School Holiday Programs have also been a wonderful, confident booster for our son. It is so lovely to see him conversing with his peers and therapists in these sessions whilst having so much fun in a positive, safe and supportive environment.” “Above all, though, what we like the most about Autism Alliance is that our child is never treated as ‘just a number’. All staff take much care, dedication and detail in providing their services.”

“Our child is

never treated as

‘just a number’.”

Supportive environment

Autism Alliance has also been able to offer Jet the opportunity to develop social skills and friendships, and Melissa and George are both looking forward to seeing their son grow even further with the support of Autism Alliance.

Melissa says that, for Jet, the future is bright and that the family is constantly learning.

“We’re learning, adapting and improving each day as an ASD family and we have such a happy and positive outlook for Jet’s future. “There is so much hope that Jet will be able to achieve whatever he wants to in life and that is exciting!”

Paediatricians Paediatricians are doctors who specifically look after the health of children,

including physical, behaviour and mental health issues. They diagnose and treat childhood illness, infections and disease.

Up to the age of five, a paediatrician will see your child to complete physical

examinations, give your child vaccinations, ensure they meet growth, behaviour and skill milestones, provide information, answer your questions and refer to specialists if required.

Therapists & Specialists

Paediatricians can closely monitor your child’s development and diagnose

learning difficulties, ADHD, auditory or sensory processing disorders, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, autism and Down syndrome, among a whole host of other health

conditions. As they see only children, they have a lot of experience in recognising and treating childhood health issues.

If your child was born premature or has a health condition that requires close

monitoring, a paediatrician offers specialised care. If your child requires the help

of an occupational therapist, speech therapist, audiologist or other specialist, they will organise referrals and oversee treatment with their help.

If you are concerned about your child and you have a trusted paediatrician, they should be your first port-of-call.

A list of paediatricians can be found within the Therapists & Specialists directory starting on page 102.

Physiotherapists Physiotherapists work closely with their patients to help them feel better across

a number of ailments. They assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a range of health conditions through massage, stretching and exercises.

If your child has a developmental delay, a physiotherapist can help with movement and coordination. They can create treatment programmes to help maintain muscle strength, increase flexibility and prevent stiffening of joints.

Physiotherapists can assist with movement, coordination and balance in people

with conditions such as muscular dystrophy, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy and spina bifida.

They also work in injury prevention, acute care, chronic disease management, occupational health, rehabilitation and maintenance of functional mobility. Find physiotherapists in your area in the directory starting on page 102.

Psychologists Psychologists help people learn to cope more effectively with life and mental health issues. Some people see a psychologist to work through long-term

problems, such as depression, anger or anxiety or short-term problems like grief or feeling overwhelmed.

Psychologists can help people cope with stress, overcome addictions and manage chronic illness which may affect their mental or physical health. To help with these

health problems psychologists use evidence-based treatments tailored to best suit the patient’s problem, characteristics and preferences.

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21


Common types of therapy used by psychologists include cognitive, behavioural or a combination of the two, interpersonal, humanistic or psychodynamic

therapy. Therapy coupled with medication can prove more effective for some health conditions.

Psychologists play a pivotal role in treating people with psychosocial disorders, such as depression, bipolar, ADHD, PTSD and anxiety by helping them talk through, uncover and overcome their feelings.

Speech therapists Speech therapists work on smoothing out communication and swallowing difficulties in both children and adults.

Speech therapists can assist with speech, language, communication and fluency

problems. They also help with augmentative or alternative communication where people who have trouble speaking learn to communicate in other ways.

Someone diagnosed with sensory processing disorder or auditory processing

disorder may benefit from the support of a speech therapist as they can help with understanding language, reading, writing as well as developing social skills. They can also help children with a developmental delay and learning difficulties in reaching milestones.

Additionally to this, speech therapists can help with communication problems

associated with stroke, brain injuries, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, hearing impairment and dementia.

People with Down syndrome sometimes find it difficult to speak clearly and may see a speech therapist to work on articulation.

Speech therapists often work alongside other professionals such as occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dietitians, audiologists, psychologists, doctors and teachers.

Turn to page 102 to find speech therapists in your area.

Therapeutic supports

Therapeutic supports are products, aids and treatments that can help you gain valuable skills and improve your independence. These supports can assist in

areas such as language and communication, personal care, mobility, movement, interpersonal interactions, behaviour and other skills that support a person’s

function, development and wellbeing.

Therapeutic supports are offered by a team of health professionals including

occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech therapists and psychologists, among others.

For example, physiotherapists may prescribe serial casting, splinting, stretches

and an exercise program for babies with spina bifida. For someone with sensory sensitivities, an occupational therapist may suggest using a weighted blanket or sensory toys to help stimulate one or more of the five senses.

The therapeutic supports required to help you can vary and may be funded within your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan.

Accommodation

About Accommodation There are different types of accommodation and living arrangements available depending on your situation and needs. You may choose to live with or without support, in your own home or with your family. When deciding where you’d like to live you should think about the location, style and accessibility of the housing and the support you need every day.

It is important to do your research to find the best accommodation option that

will allow you to fulfil your potential and participate within your community. If you need help finding accommodation to meet your needs and circumstances your Local Area Coordinator may be able to help.

On the following pages we explain different types of accommodation.

Sometimes a new perspective can make all the difference when seeing the potential of a space, which is precisely what happened at one of Life Without Barriers’ Disability Supported Accommodation houses. “There was this storage room full of old equipment that we didn’t need, [and] it had the potential to be so much more,” says Support Coordinator Rachel, reflecting on how the idea of a ‘party room’ came about. “The Team Leader and I spoke with the three ladies who live in the house about how they would like to see that space used instead. They wanted it to be a bit of a mix of sensory, pampering and craft.” Guided by feedback from the residents, staff began sourcing items to turn their vision into a reality, such as fairy lights, craft activities and music devices. “Both staff and residents helped to bring it all together and once

finished, it also gave the ladies an extra space to use while having to stay at home,” says Rachel. Now the former storage room is a colourful multi-functional space, which residents have called “the party room”. It contains various lighting features and space to do craft activities for a visual sensory experience, as well as an area for residents to pamper themselves and use scented items. “They go in and out of the room every day, they seem to take it in turns and allow each other space when they are in there,” Rachel adds. “This is my special getaway place when the girls are too noisy – I feel [like] I am in the ocean,” resident Kylie says. The efforts of Rachel and the team behind the new party room demonstrate Life Without Barriers’ values of being responsive, using imagination to maximise

an opportunity, and building relationships with residents to ensure their wants, needs and ideas drove how they transformed the space. “The team has been so inspired by what they can achieve that they have now started on the backyard area,” Rachel continues, “and I cannot wait to see what they can do with that.” Case study provided by Life Without Barriers


24-hour emergency accommodation If you experience an emergency situation and are unable to stay in your current housing, 24-hour emergency accommodation services can help.

You can find providers who offer 24-hour emergency accommodation in the directory starting on page 133.

Housing and public housing If you have a disability and would like to and are able to live independently, the house hunting journey begins.

With a growing trend towards built up, multi-storey housing, finding the right home for you can often prove difficult. It is important to live in a home that is safe, comfortable and accessible. If you are renting, having a landlord that is

⃝  homelessness with custody of children

2.  Adaptable housing, designed to be easily adapted to meet the changing needs of its occupants.

3.  Modified housing, has some modifications, such as an access ramp or bathroom alterations, already completed and available for use.

The Government may help by covering the cost of home modifications to ensure you can live safely and independently in your home. These could include minor

modifications such as the installation of handrails, inside ramps, sliding doors and

lever taps, or major modifications such as outdoor ramps, lowering of benches and cupboards, and accessibility modifications to the bathroom and laundry areas.

You may be eligible to access home modifications through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), but if you don’t own your home, make sure you have written consent from your landlord before undertaking any changes.

Your Local Area Coordinator can help you find suitable housing. Disability

Long-term accommodation We all strive for ongoing housing security and living in long-term accommodation will provide peace of mind, which means you can focus on making the most of your life.

Long-term accommodation enables you to live as independently as you can, and

have access to support as needed. For example, if you have a mobility impairment

you may have someone come into your house to assist you with house cleaning or

personal care tasks like showering. Or you may need help with meal preparation or having your groceries delivered.

A number of disability service providers offer long-term accommodation to help people with disability enjoy being a part of the community. Often these types

Accommodation

of accommodation are built and managed by providers who understand the accessibility requirements and different needs of each individual.

You can find providers who offer long-term accommodation in the directory starting on page 133.

Respite

Taking a break from your carer is beneficial to both of you. Not only does it help

maintain positive family and carer relationships, but it also allows you the chance to meet new people and experience new things. This is known as respite and it plays an important role in allowing carers to take some time-out from their caring role.

Respite options include:  ⃝  Centre-based day support is when you spend the day at a specialised centre, where trained staff know and understand your needs.

⃝  Overnight or weekend facility-based support is a flexible respite option which may involve in home support or staying with a host family over the weekend.

⃝  In home support is when a support worker will look after you in the comfort of your own home, giving your carer a break.

⃝  Community-based respite can include one-on-one or group outings, social and recreational activities, camps and school holiday programs.

⃝  Host family stays involve staying in the home of a volunteer or host family. It is a good option for children or young people with disability.

⃝  Emergency respite is an urgent request for respite, if your carer is suddenly unable to care for you due to illness or an emergency trip to the hospital.

Your eligibility for respite care depends on the type of care you need and the

service provider. An assessment will determine your eligibility and what services will best suit you and your carer.

Find out more about respite services on CarerGateway.com.au or call 1800 422 737. It is also a good idea to speak to your Local Area Coordinator about your respite options, especially if you want to access it on a regular basis.

You can find providers who offer respite in the directory starting on page 133.

Shared living If you would prefer to not live alone and instead enjoy the company and support of a housemate, shared living is a good option.

This involves people with similar needs living in a cluster of units together, with access to support. In this housing setting you live by yourself but have other people with disability living in nearby homes.

Some people with disability live with friends or others with similar needs, sharing costs, helping each other with tasks and providing mutual support.

Group homes are where several unrelated people live in a home with support staff. This style of accommodation is for people who need 24-hour support, including

Shared living arrangements provide the opportunity for people with disability to meet new people, develop friendships with their roommates, enjoy a social life and maximising their independence while also getting the support they need.

To find providers who can help you find the best shared living accommodation for you, turn to page 133 of the Accommodation directory.

Short-term accommodation

Finding the right accommodation setting to meet your needs can be

overwhelming, especially if you and your carer need to take a break or you are

being discharged from a stay in hospital and need to find accommodation that will ensure you are looked after for a short period of time.

Short-term accommodation helps you make new friends and meet new people, try new activities, step outside your comfort zone and achieve some independence. Types of short term accommodation include:  ⃝  One-on-one short-term care where you are paired up with a support worker

for a period of time that suits your particular needs. This can be spent in your home or out in the community participating in local activities.

⃝  Group short-term options match your needs with other people who

may have similar needs and interests and enjoy participating in a group

help with meals, personal hygiene, appointments and social activities.

respite activity.

⃝  Facility-based is where your needs and interests align with shared short-term accommodation facilities.

Turn to page 133 to find providers who offer short term accommodation.

Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is a type of accommodation especially for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants with very high support needs.

The SDA funding covers the cost of a person’s home so that they can live and

receive their day-to-day supports. Importantly, it allows people with disability to remain integrated into the community.

SDA gives people with disability a choice about their housing environment,

ensuring they receive the right support and housing design for them, including lighting, access spaces and amenities.

DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au

131


For example, if you have an aquired brain injury, intellectual disability or complex

mobility issue, SDA will ensure you receive the support you require, in a house that is suited to your needs.

You’ll find a list of providers offering SDA in the directory starting on page 133.

Supported independent living (SIL) You may enjoy living independently but also require some extra support to meet your daily needs. If so, supported independent living may suit you. This type of

accommodation may include living in a block of units alongside other people with disability and receiving support in your home.

These types of supports could include laundry, cleaning, meal preparation and personal care. In this situation, you are surrounded by people who know and

Accommodation

understand your needs, as well as neighbours in similar situations.

You may be eligible for NDIS funding for supported independent living if you live

in a private rental home, own your own home, live with others or live in Specialist Disability Accommodation.

There are three levels of supported accommodation, depending on your needs and the number of people in the supported living setting.

⃝ Lower needs – supervision of living arrangements and support is not usually provided 24/7.

⃝ Standard needs – 24/7 support including assistance and/or supervision of most daily tasks and overnight sleepovers.

⃝ Higher needs – frequent assistance to the individual with managing

challenging behaviours, continual assistance with all daily tasks, management of complex medical needs such as ventilation, active support 24/7 including overnight support.

Through supported independent living, you have access to trained staff to help

you engage in vocational, educational and recreational activities and increase your independence around your home through meal preparation, gardening and other domestic duties.

Turn to page 133 to find providers who offer supported independent living options in your State or Territory.

Tenancy Finding the right rental property if you live with disability can be difficult. For

example, if you use a wheelchair you may need somewhere without stairs, with sliding doors and an accessible bathroom.

A home which suits your personal needs can be more expensive or further away

from amenities and transport. If you are struggling to afford an accessible home or rental property, there is financial support available.

If you meet the eligibility requirements you may be able to receive

Commonwealth Rental Assistance (CRA) through Centrelink which provides you with some financial assistance.

There are a number of disability housing organisations who can help find and place you in a suitable rental property or visit DisabilityHousing.com.au for housing options near you.

You can find a list of providers in the Accommodation directory starting on page 133. 132

About Advisors Advisors

Whether you’re trying to find a job, need financial advice or want to gain an understanding of the best supports available to you under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), an advisor who specialises in a specific area will be able to help you make sense of it. There are employment advisors who can help you work through the opportunities available to you when you transition from school into the workforce, and financial services who can give advice on what effect your disability may have on your

income and financial situation. Or you may need help from a plan manager to

help you navigate the funding system to make sure you get the most out of NDIS supports services.

Advisors can help make your life easier and will work with you to ensure you get

the best outcomes for you. They can look at your personal circumstances and what you’re trying to achieve and give you advice on what steps need to be taken.

On the following pages we explain what different Advisors do and how they can help you. The Advisors directory starting on page 155 lists providers delivering services in Central and Western Australia.

Case Study

Colleen, a former fitness instructor with type I diabetes, was fit and healthy until signs of heart disease, a major complication of diabetes, developed in her 40s. When Colleen underwent a heart transplant, things didn’t quite go to plan. After four days on life support Colleen woke up on the fifth day and couldn’t see.

She had suffered ischemic optic neuropathy, a condition where blood loss permanently damages the optic nerves that send signals from the eyes to the brain, enabling sight. Leaving her with 5% peripheral vision in her right eye and no usable vision in her left eye, Colleen took the devastating news on the chin.

“I’ve always played the cards that are dealt to me, so when I woke up and I had no vision, they said I’d been asleep for almost a week and my brain might take a bit of time to adjust,” she says.

“So, as the days went on and there wasn’t any improvement, it really didn’t faze me, and when I started thinking this might be permanent, I just thought, ‘Well if this has happened, it’s going to open up new doorways’.” And they sure did, to stay fit Colleen took up swimming, challenging herself to compete in the 2018 Transplant Games where she took out gold!

Vision Australia’s involvement with Colleen began when she was still in hospital, starting with small, practical things like ensuring her mobile phone was more accessible for her.

It then progressed to mobility training with her hot pink long cane and giving Colleen visual and tactile aids and a range of handy gadgets that keep her active around the home and in the wider community. They also supported Colleen with the NDIS, navigating the system together.

In 2018, Colleen was matched with Seeing Eye Dog Xian through Vision Australia Seeing Eye Dogs.

“As a fully trained guide dog, she helps me get here, there and everywhere. Xian has given me even greater independence and helps me to get around safely.” Colleen adds, “Vision Australia is fabulous. They are really supportive. They are always on the phone if you need them, or offering anything new that might be handy.”

Assessments

Before you can start any type of therapy or support it is common to have an

assessment first. The purpose of assessments is to get to know you, understand

how your disability affects your daily life and what support you need to help make your life easier.

You’ll meet the therapist that will support you through the sessions or a clinical

director and they will also discuss with you what you would like to achieve through the therapy sessions and what the therapy will involve.

An assessment will identify what your needs are to make sure you receive the appropriate support. In some cases the professional can refer you to other specialists for additional support.

Before you start using special equipment such as a wheelchair, hearing aids or

home modification equipment such as grab rails or ramps, it is best to have an

assessment to make sure that the equipment you’ll be using is right for you and your circumstances.

Case coordinators

Case coordinators are highly qualified workers who can meet with you to

discuss your needs. They act as overarching case managers, assigning support coordinators to coordinate the supports required in your NDIS plan.

These important coordinators talk to providers about the supports you need and take case notes to support insurance or legal claims.

Case coordinators will identify what supports you may need and keep well-

documented information about you and what you require. They will then hand the

To find providers that offer assessments near you, turn to the Advisors

plan of action over to a support coordinator to implement your supports.

To find case coordinators in your area, turn to the Advisors directory starting on page 155.

Education support By law every child is entitled to the same education opportunities. For students

with disability, schools must make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to student learning

programs and the school environment. To ensure a safe and inclusive environment for students with disability adjustments can be made to the way the classroom is set up, the approach to teaching and learning, ways students are assessed

for progress, as well as planning to meet individual needs and ongoing training for staff.

In each State and Territory, the Department of Education is responsible for dayto-day supervision of students. This includes employing appropriately trained

staff, providing learning aids, organising transport for school activities, adjusting the school curriculum and ensuring the school buildings are easily accessible. However, some supports may be covered through the NDIS.

You may receive education supports through your NDIS plan if you need assistance with self-care at school, specialist transport, portable equipment or specialised, intensive support when transitioning between schools.

DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au

Students with disability can access additional support at primary and high school through both internal and external services.

This can include special programs within the school, specialised schools,

counselling, tutoring, as well as teaching aids and allied health supports. Support is also available at most preschools, kindergartens and early learning centres. Specialist advisors can give you further information and guide you if you are

interested in continuing in higher education or vocational education and training. Read more about education support for students with disability on page 42. To find providers that offer education support services go to page 155.

Employment support As well as increasing your independence and participating in your community,

finding employment will help you develop new skills. An employment support

advisor can offer career advice and help you plan an employment pathway, so you can work towards your employment goals.

To help with some basics, employment services may assist with writing your

Advisors

resumé or finding other professional development opportunities. They may also

support you by finding on-the-job training or support your employer to assist you in your work.

Service providers can also help support you in your employment by providing

the opportunity for you to work within a service provider owned business. This is known as ‘supported employment’.

Once you have found a job, you can receive one-on-one support to help you maintain your employment and smooth out any difficulties you may face.

There are a number of Government programs which aim to support people with disability in finding and keeping employment.

Read more about employment and volunteering options on page 43 and turn to page 155 to find employment support options near you.

Financial services Living with or looking after someone with a disability can impact your life

financially. Financial services such as financial advisors can assist in budgeting, organising finances and planning for the future.

If your disability means you are unable to work you may be eligible for a regular payment from the Government. Financial advisors can offer advice on how to manage your income and any financial assistance you receive. They can also

help in planning for the future, especially if you are under the care of a family

member. Financial services can also be appointed to make financial decisions on your behalf.

The Financial Planning Association of Australia can help you find an accredited planner in your local area, however, it is always a good idea to ask financial

planning companies if they have previous experience in handling the monetary matters of people with disabilities. Some financial planning companies even specialise in this.

To find financial services turn to page 155 of the Advisors directory.

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21


Intervention support Intervention support is an umbrella term for all the different supports available to

help you gain or regain your independence and increase your participation within your community.

These supports could include strategies to prepare you for employment, such

as assistance in looking for a job, training and skill building or support in finding community activities that interest you.

Intervention support plays an important role in helping you live a fulfilling life and achieve your goals.

Turn to page 155 to find providers in the Advisors directory section offering intervention support.

Plan managers

Implementing your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan and finding providers that are right for you, can be really stressful to do by yourself. If you

don’t want to self-manage your plan or have the Government agency manage implementation and navigation of your plan easier.

Plan managers can help you make the most of your funding while being able to use both registered and non-NDIS registered providers for your supports. They give you the freedom of choice and control without all the responsibility of self-managing your NDIS plan.

Instead of contacting the NDIS to access your funding or talking to providers

directly about payment, a plan manager is your financial third party who handles all monetary agreements on your behalf.

They receive invoices from your providers, pay invoices, claim funds from the NDIS

Advisors

your NDIS funds, a plan manager can help. Having a plan manager can make the

portal and provide you with a monthly statement showing your funding spending. Depending on who you choose as a plan manager, they may provide other

accompanying services or ‘skill building’ options, including the set up of service

agreements with providers, provide perspective on budgeting options, build your financial literacy around the NDIS, and potentially help develop your own skills at managing your NDIS funding.

At your NDIS planning meeting you can discuss how you want your funds

managed and you can choose a plan management provider. Your support coordinator can help you select the best plan manager for you.

When selecting a plan manager, look at reviews of their business and try to meet them face to face or arrange a video call to gauge whether they are the right fit for you.

A good plan manager is impartial and always keeps your needs as a priority when providing their expertise.

To find a plan manager near you turn to the directory tables starting on page 155.

Support coordinators

Support coordinators will help you achieve the outcomes you want from your NDIS plan and support services. Their overall aim is to build your ability to have choice and control over your services.

To do this they will help you understand what is included in your plan and help

develop your skills so eventually you will be able to implement and manage your own supports and live your best life. They can also connect you to community, mainstream and other Government services.

To meet your individual needs and help you reach your goals, there is no ‘one-sizefits-all’ approach and support coordinators will support each person differently. To be able to help you get the support you need, support coordinators will need to:

⃝ Understand you, your disability, your family situation or support network ⃝ Liaise with and involve service providers that can meet your and your family’s needs

Advisors

⃝ Highlight any barriers standing between you and support services and/or achieving your goals

They are also responsible for: ⃝ Ensuring there are adequate funds available to fulfil your support ⃝ Resolving any problems that arise between you and your service provider Support coordination can be broken up into three levels and if/how much funding you receive in your plan will depend on your individual circumstances, goals and aspirations.

The three levels of support coordination are: ⃝ Support connection – helps develop your ability to take control of your NDIS plan and supports by maintaining relationships with your service providers, resolving any issues and connecting to support services.

⃝ Support coordination – helps you navigate the often confusing and complex service delivery environment by developing your skills in connecting with, coordinating and managing your support services. It also helps build your

confidence in reaching out to service providers that will help you meet your individual goals.

⃝ Specialist support coordination – is suited for people in high-risk situations and with very specific needs due to challenges with health, education, or justice services. It will help you address and work through these complex barriers and assists you in connecting to appropriate support services. Specialist

support coordination is a high intensity support and is only appropriate under exceptional circumstances.

The main difference between ‘normal’ support coordination and specialist

support coordination is that the specialist support coordinator is a qualified and experienced practitioner such as an occupational therapist or a social worker.

Because support coordination is essentially seen as Capacity building it is generally time-limited support. This means that over time, as your understanding, skills and confidence grow you will be able to manage your services almost independently and the need for support coordination reduces.

Turn to page 155 to find providers in your area that offer support coordination services. 154

Equipment & Technology

About Equipment & Technology You can use the wide range of equipment and technology that is available to help you with tasks you wouldn’t normally be able to do, or to make them easier and safer for you to do them.

These devices or systems can give you confidence with everyday living by assisting with mobility, communication and personal care. They may also reduce the need for assistance from another person and in some cases, may prevent or slow the development of further impairment.

Common equipment such as handrails or bathroom chairs can be purchased ‘of the shelf’ while others, such as a prosthesis, can be tailored specifically for your

needs. Technology can also be used to make life easier by modifying devices and appliances, such as vehicles and beds to make them easier to access or operate. As technology is ever changing, it is worthwhile checking in to see what new products could benefit you.

On the following pages we explain what different Equipment & Technology options there are and how they can help you. You’ll find a list of providers

servicing Central and Western Australia in the Equipment & Technology directory starting on page 181.

Case Study

Australian Gliders basketball player and Paralympian Sarah Vinci, played several sports when she was young, but in 1998, when a friend from the Spina Bifida Association encouraged her to try out for basketball, eight-year old Sarah knew this was exactly what she wanted to do. In 2006 Sarah became a junior member of the Australian Gliders, and the Team won silver at the 2012 London Paralympics. Sarah says this is her greatest achievement to date. “I had minutes on the court, or ‘skin’ in every game. It’s been a while, but I definitely think I scored a few goals too,” she adds.

When the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) rolled out in the Cockburn area Sarah was ready for a change of provider. The NDIA Planner referred her to Indigo (formerly Independent Living

176

Centre WA), and as Sarah says, “Rachel was the first occupational therapist (OT) who came out, and I’ve never looked back. Every OT who’s worked with me has been amazing. The OT’s threw ideas at me I’d never even imagined or thought of, it’s been great”.

Working with Indigo, Sarah has been able to get the assistive technology (devices and equipment) she requires to live with confidence in her home and play the sport she loves. Last year Sarah was excited to receive a new titanium basketball wheelchair through her NDIS plan.

The lighter wheelchair will make a world of difference. “Every bit of equipment I have is valuable, because it helps me live my life, but I love my basketball wheelchair.”

Indigo has been the leading centre of excellence for information, advice and

expertise about assistive technology for over 40 years.

The organisation’s experienced team provides tailored allied health and assistive technology solutions to enable greater independence and inclusion for all. Visit indigosolutions.org.au or call 1300 885 886 to find out more.

Aids and equipment Some common aids and equipment that can help you go about your daily tasks include:

⃝ visual/hearing equipment such as hearing aids or a large print computer keyboard

⃝ mobility equipment like a walking frame or a wheelchair

⃝ aids for daily living such as modified eating utensils ⃝ orthotics and prosthetics for example artificial body parts or splints and braces ⃝ sensory regulation and educational toys. These supportive aids and equipment can be included in your NDIS plan and funded through the Scheme to either hire or buy.

You can speak to your plan manager or Local Area Coordinator about what tasks you believe can be made easier with the use of aids or equipment.

You can find providers that offer a range of aids and equipment in the directory tables starting on page 181.

Assistive technology Assistive technology is any device, system or design used to help you perform functions that you find difficult.

If you have a physical or intellectual disability, assistive technologies can be

critical in allowing you to communicate, participate in everyday tasks and achieve

independence. These technologies can also benefit your support network such as

your family members, carers, teachers, employers and members of the community. Assistive technologies can also be referred to as inclusive or adaptive technologies and range from manual and electronic devices.

These devices and products do not have to be costly or high-tech. Some examples of assistive technologies include automatic door openers, touch screens, adaptive video game controllers, ramps and vehicle modifications. For example, assistive technology can help someone who is vision impaired read through the use of

audio devices or adaptive utensils may allow someone with limited motor skills to eat independently.

To ensure you are getting the right assistive technology for you, it is important to

Equipment & Technology

⃝ assistive equipment such as shower chairs, lifters and bed barriers

seek advice from a health professional or assistive technology specialist to help

understand your goals and abilities, current environment, the location in which you will use your assistive technology and the features and options that may benefit you.

They can also help arrange the delivery of your product, assist in set-up, show you how to use the technology, answer any questions you have and provide ongoing support.

Providers that offer assistive technology in your area are listed in the directory tables starting on page 181.

Communication equipment If you have difficulties communicating, there are different types of equipment that

can help. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) are communication methods used to support or replace speech. These methods can be unaided, nonelectronic or electronic.

Unaided communication includes the use of hand signals and gestures, body

Equipment & Technology

language and touch cues.

Non-electronic communication is the use of written words, symbols, spelling

and pictures to communicate. Some examples include a communication board

or book. A communication board is a grid with two or more symbols that allows

others to interpret what you are trying to communicate through pointing. These

symbols can include pictorial objects, photographs, drawings, alphabet symbols or words.

Similarly, a communication book also works on ‘pointing’ in order to convey

a message. The books can have a range of categories inside which help with expression, such as people, emotions and food.

Electronic equipment is another great way to assist with communication.

Recorded speech devices work off recorded messages, which you select with a

switch or button. Speech Generating Devices (SGDs) are used to create messages to be spoken out loud.

Specialised keyboards allow you to type a message containing letter, word or

picture symbols. Voice amplifiers use a microphone near the person’s mouth or voice box.

It is important to consider your individual needs, cost, ease of use and options

when deciding on the communication equipment that is best suited to you. Ask a communication specialist for personalised advice before making any decisions. If you need communication equipment, turn to page 181 to find providers near you.

Educational toys For a child with disability, special needs toys can help with skill building and

learning. These educational products can help manage fidgeting, develop fine or

gross motor skills, handwriting and reading, hand function and interpersonal play. Sensory toys are particularly helpful for children with autism spectrum disorder or other sensory difficulties as they help children remain calm and focus their

attention. Some sensory toy examples include water or sand tables, finger paint and light up toys.

Cause and effect toys help your child develop visual motor and grasping skills by allowing them to ‘cause’ a reaction. These types of toys develop hand-eye coordination, repetitive actions and sensory exploration which is helpful for

children with autism. Some common cause and effect toys include water squirters and pop up or light up toys.

Puzzles provide many developmental benefits including improved cognitive

function, strategy and decision making. Fidget toys can help children with ADD

or ADHD. These toys promote concentration and self regulation while decreasing stress. Some examples include play dough, sensory cushions or stress balls.

Children with oral motor difficulties can benefit from oral motor toys such as

bubbles, chewable jewellery and chewy tubes. Educational picture books also help children with disability understand common societal concepts and acceptable ways to behave.

Turn to page 181 to discover where you can find educational toys for your child.

Personal hygiene products include disposable or washable incontinence products,

feeding bibs, modified hair combs and wound dressings. Medical equipment, such as syringes and enteral feeding products are also available to those who need it. You can speak to your doctor or specialist about which healthcare products are available to help your personal hygiene.

Home modifications Making some adjustments around the home by changing the layout, having

special fittings installed or bringing in specialist equipment could make everyday life and activities easier for you.

These home modifications could include big changes like widening doorways for wheelchair access or lowering benches in the kitchen, or they could be as simple as installing a handrail or hiring or buying a lifting chair or a special bed.

If you’re looking into home modifications go to the Equipment & Technology directory starting on page 181 for a list of providers.

Mobility equipment If you have limited mobility or are unable to use standard forms of transport you may want to look at mobility equipment to help you get around.

There are special scooters and bikes available, as well as motorised or manual

wheelchairs, and special bicycles and tricycles for both children and adults, to help you get out and about within your community.

Go to the directory starting on page 181 to find mobility equipment providers

Equipment & Technology

You may find that you need some help with personal care tasks such as washing

near you.

Vehicle modifications Having your own transport to get around increases your independence, and you may be eligible for funding to modify your vehicle.

Vehicle modifications can make it easier to get in and out of your car, help

transport your wheelchair without having to lift it in the vehicle, or mean you can drive with specialised controls.

To find providers that can help with vehicle modifications turn to page 181.

Mental Health

About Mental Health Approximately one in five Australians will experience difficulties with their mental health at some stage during their life. Some mental health conditions can have a long-term effect on your ability to function in everyday activities. Mental health illness refers to a group of conditions such as schizophrenia,

psychosis, anxiety, depression and eating disorders, among others. People

living with mental health conditions may also experience poverty, isolation, unemployment, homelessness, poor physical health and discrimination.

It is important to know not every mental health issue is considered a disability but

if the effects are long lasting or permanent then you may receive support through disability funding.

On the following pages we explain what different mental health support options there are and how they can help you.

“For the first time in years I was treated as an individual and not just another number. I was seen as a person with my own goals and my own struggles and was treated as such.”

Case Study

Ash had been a part of the mental health system since she was 14 years old, but it wasn’t until she found Richmond Wellbeing’s Recovery House, a live-in supported accommodation service, that she really felt her life turn around. “I was a shell – I had no hope before entering the program. I didn’t care at all and that was a scary place to be,” Ash says.

200

Recovery House’s person-centred and community-driven approach allowed Ash to learn about mental health pathways and study to receive her Diploma of Community Services and Case Management. “I’ve participated in many mental health training courses, which has really helped my understanding of recovery,” Ash says. “I can talk about things more openly now, especially with my family. The family involvement at Recovery House was really invaluable and it’s nice they could go on that journey with me.”

Disability Support Guide Central & Western Australia 2020/21

Ash now works at Recovery House as a Recovery Support Worker and promotes the message of hope to others by sharing her lived experience. “It’s a privilege to see people and share space with people when they’re at their most vulnerable,” Ash adds. “I’m able to say to them ‘I’ve been there’ and it’s not tokenistic, it’s genuine. “I feel really positive about my future and I just want to keep using opportunities that come up to give a little bit of my hope to someone who’s lost theirs.” Richmond Wellbeing offers a range of community support services, both residential and outreach. They are a registered NDIS provider, helping people access services that make a real difference.

Mental health support

Living with a disability and the challenges you face on a day-to-day basis can

affect your mental health. Dealing with physical limitations that may also affect

your ability to work can lead to financial stress, depression or anxiety. Not being

able to take part in social activities due to disability has also been known to lead to feelings of isolation and depression.

It is important to look after your mental health, as well as your physical health.

If you’re experiencing anxiety, depression or stress there are helplines, support

groups and professionals who can help you by listening to your story, allowing you to share your experience and learn from others and supporting you to manage and improve your mental health.

Helplines

If you need to speak to someone, have someone listen or be supported through a anyone, with some helplines designated to servicing and supporting people with specific needs.

Helplines are often run by non-Government organisations and can help by

providing information and advice to you and your family and carers. They’ll allow you to remain anonymous if you choose and can also refer you to find other support services if needed.

Some helplines operate 24/7, whereas others are open within business hours only. You can find a broad range of mental health support options, including

helplines, information and resources on the Head to Health website, created by the Department of Health. Visit headtohealth.gov.au to find out more.

Mental health nurses

Mental health nurses are specifically trained to plan and provide support, while

giving you medical and nursing care. Mental health nurses help educate you and your family about your mental illness, provide counselling and strategies to help

you come to terms with your condition, assist with medications and management of symptoms, link you with other health professionals, help with Centrelink

Mental Health

difficult time, helplines are a good general point of contact. They are often open to

services, housing and community programs and offer support while following your road to recovery.

You will find these nurses providing their valuable services and care in the community, in hospital mental health units, psychiatric hospitals and in nursing homes.

Psychologists

A mental health psychologist is there to identify and treat mental health and emotional issues that may be affecting your life.

This trained health practitioner is not a medical doctor and therefore cannot

prescribe medications. Instead they can help you understand and resolve your

problems, make changes in your behaviour and in doing so, improve your quality of life and mental health.

Psychologists do this through observation, assessment and experimentation to identify what will best suit each individual recovering from a mental health condition.

You don’t need a referral from your GP to see a psychologist however a

management plan from your GP may assist with covering some of the cost through Medicare.

Turn to page 203 to find psychologists practicing in your area. DisabilitySupportGuide.com.au

201


Psychiatrists

Like a psychologist, a psychiatrist will also identify and treat mental health and

emotional issues that may be affecting your life, but because they are a trained doctor, they are able to prescribe medications to help treat you.

Psychiatrists diagnose and treat people with mental health conditions such as schizophrenia, depression, addiction, bipolar and eating disorders.

To do this they develop a management plan, provide lifestyle advice, seek second opinions from other health professionals, provide referrals and work alongside you, your partner, family or carers to help you understand your symptoms and treatments.

Your treatment plan may include medication, psychological treatment and brain stimulation therapies, such as electroconvulsive therapy.

Mental Health

To see a psychiatrist you will generally need a referral from your GP.

Psychosocial support

Psychosocial support is a non-medicinal treatment used to treat people with

mental illness meaning it doesn’t use medication. Instead it works by altering the

person’s behaviours and relationships with society. Education is key to the success of psychosocial support.

The two main types of interventions include cognitive and behavioural therapy. Cognitive therapy focuses on a person’s thoughts about themselves, their

environment and their role in society. By changing negative internal dialogue

to positive, the person can live a happy, healthy life. Some methods of cognitive

therapy include individual counselling and group therapy with people with similar areas of difficulty.

Behavioural therapy is used to teach a person the skills needed to alter their

behaviour. This helps people become more comfortable in social situations and overcome feelings of inadequacy or isolation.

To find psychosocial support near you go to page 203.

Social workers

Social workers make up the greatest percentage among mental health

professionals. A social worker can support you on both a personal and social

level to help improve your wellbeing. They will help you cope with problems

in your everyday life by making recommendations and help you work towards positive outcomes.

Social workers possess high levels of compassion and empathy as well as good listening and problem solving skills.

They have an extensive knowledge of human behaviour and development. Social workers fight for social justice and equality of people in need. Within the mental health sector, they provide individual, family and couples therapy. You will find social workers in private practices and mental health units.

Social workers play an important role in identifying those in need, assessing

needs, implementing an action plan, helping people adjust, connecting people to resources and support, responding to crisis and maintaining a caring relationship throughout the person’s recovery.

A list of social workers can be found in the directory starting on page 203.

Make sure all your questions are answered during your planning meeting, take your time and don’t be rushed

Prepare a list of questions to ask during your meeting, such as:

When can I expect to receive my NDIS plan?

How can I get in contact with you after our meeting if I remember something else?

Who will help me understand my plan and answer any further questions I have?

Who can help me organise my supports and put my plan into action?

Can you repeat my answers back to me?

Am I able to review my plan before it is finalised?

Think of who you’d like to bring with you to your planning meeting. It could be your carer, a parent, a friend or your partner.

During your planning meeting

Write down your planner’s name and contact details

Take notes so you can refer to what has been discussed later on

Go through the information you collected and prepared

Ask about language or cultural support

Present any quotes for item/services you are requesting

Present specialist reports showing therapies or supports recommended

Advise which plan management option you wish to use (agency managed,

Remember to tell your planner why you need certain supports

Confirm when your next plan review will be held

Make sure all your questions are answered

your plan and supports on your behalf, if necessary

supports you need so you want to make sure you get it right.

When you receive your plan

Check it to make sure you understand what is included in your plan

Await contact by an NDIS representative to discuss putting your plan into action

Notify your service providers and organise a time to sign Service Agreements

Link your myGov account to your NDIS participant portal, following the instructions sent by the NDIA. The NDIS participant portal allows you to view your plan and manage your services with your providers.

As you begin to receive support through your plan, think about how these supports are

working for you and what else you may need to achieve your long-term goals before your plan review in 12 months time.
