Guide to NDIS Decision making: When a decision can be made by, with or for an adult with a significant cognitive disability. The aim of this guide is to outline when decision-making support, advocacy and substitute decision-making will be needed for potential and current NDIS participants who have significant cognitive disability. It does this in the context of each possible decision-making stage within the NDIS participant pathway.
