Who is this for:
  • Support coordinators 
  • NDIS allied health professionals
  • Professionals assisting people with complex support needs

This workshop includes:

  • Practical exercises
  • Group discussion
  • Question and answer session
  • A comprehensive list of helpful resources
This workshop assumes you have good working knowledge of SDA including what it is, how it is separate to support, how it is different to mainstream housing, the SDA design categories and SDA building types.
We will focus on the SDA Rules (2020), SDA eligibility and the evidence required for an SDA application.

After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Apply the specialist disability accommodation (SDA) Rules and eligibility criteria
  • Identify the types of supporting evidence required to support SDA requests
  • Work with other professionals to source evidence for SDA
  • Write a housing report addressing the SDA Rules
  • Complete a home and living supporting evidence form

Why should I attend this workshop?

By 2025, the NDIA estimates that 30,000 participants will have SDA in their plans. As of September 2022, however, only 20,920 were receiving SDA payments.

Build your understanding of the evidence required for an application for SDA. This workshop is valuable if you’re working for people who may be SDA eligible, as you will need to provide the NDIA with supporting evidence that addresses the SDA eligibility criteria, set out in the SDA Rules (2020).
