NDIS: Guides for understanding employment supports
The NDIS has launched a new resource: Guide for understanding employment supports.
The Guide is designed to help participants, their families and carers think about what employment supports might best suit their individual needs. It worked with participants and disability groups as we developed the Guide and used their advice to make sure it is useful and easy to follow.
The NDIS presents current research evidence about the support but does not provide an opinion about the supports participants should choose. It will release more Guides in the future and continue to work with participants and stakeholders to continue improving the resources.
The Guides are organised in seven areas:
- Thinking about your career
- Moving from school to work
- Developing a pathway to work
- Getting a job
- Thinking about self-employment
- Keeping a job
- Changing jobs.
