What Our Students Are Saying

A lot of helpful recourses and links. I struggle to find the right information sometimes so it was good to be pointed in the right direction.



Very informative. Things we often take for granted and don’t even think about. I am much aware of the language I am using.



The information was simple, short, clean and easy to follow. Great work!



Thanks so much for all the helpful information. I realised I was quite passive in making plans with a local coordinator due to my lack of knowledge. I am now more confident.


Care recipient

Very informative. I was worried about the NDIS and feel much more at ease with it all.
