The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) invites people with disability, families and carers to attend information sessions to learn more about the participant journey at the NDIS. There have been some recent changes with the addition of Community Connections and changing the wording from “reviews” to “check-ins” regarding plan reviews with your LAC.
