This project is about understanding the experiences of parents of children with disability and their perspectives regarding self-managed NDIS plans.

More people are opting in to self-manage NDIS plans each year however, there is limited research that investigated the experiences of these parents. The result of this project will contribute to inform evidence about self-managed NDIS plans, which will ultimately assist families to make appropriate choices for their children and develop tailored support services for families.


To be eligible participants:

  • Must be parents/caregivers of a child who is between the age of 7 and 18 years old with disability.
  • Must have been self-managing their child’s NDIS plan for at least six (6) months, arranging services, such as support workers.
