The Biggest Challenges for Self-Management (and How Ability8 Can Help)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) ran a survey asking for feedback on self-managing. They used the findings to create a new NDIS Self-Management Policy. This policy aims to help more people with a disability to self-manage.

Participants said their biggest challenges with self-management included:

  • budget tracking
