Elias was unable to utilise his NDIS funding in his previous plan, as he and the family did not understand any of the funding categories or the scheme itself.
Our Support Coordinator inquired about his goals and the biggest one was attending an art program, as he loved painting and drawing. They investigated numerous art programs and chose Studio Artes as the most appropriate.
They then liaised with Studio Artes and organised a trial session accompanied by a group home support worker. Elias loved the arts program. We were then able to get him two days of classes, as well as maintaining attendance at day programs.
The family were very thankful as their son had never been able to participate in art programs prior to this.
