NDIS Life Skills and Development

Life Skills are the things we learn along the way that enable us to function from day to day in a complex world full of challenges, expectations, unseen obstacles, and unavoidable circumstances. People living with disabilities often have different experiences where they may not have had the same exposures, or they may face different obstacles, and in turn, they have a different set of life skills.

Whether you or your loved one experiences a disability, there are ample support services available with funding from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to ensure you live your life to the fullest.

How can Life Skills and Development Services Help Someone With a Disability?

Disability is a broad term and encompasses many challenges that people face in manoeuvering through the world. It could be that you have a physical disability, impairing your motor functions or mobility. Likewise, you could have a cognitive or emotional disability, where you’re unable to appropriately interact with the world presented to you. Or it could be a combination of these.

Developing additional life skills allows you to live more independently and achieve your goals for a fulfilling life. This development is not as simple as buying an assistive device; it takes time, mentoring, motivation, and encouragement to reach your goals. But when you do eventually develop more life skills, you will have a toolset that enables you to face almost any obstacle, and move past it.
