Models of disability show the social constructs of how disability is viewed through various models of disability which affect how disability is funded which is essential for anyone who really wants to understand disability and so very important for support coordinators to know so they can put in well thought-out reassessment submissions and know what arguments and factual information to provide to maximise funding outcomes. Are you ready to really know how to get the best for your clients? In this module you'll learn: - The social construct called disability - How 'disability' is viewed in a number of ways through models of disability and that these influence how and what disability is funded - The models can be used to ensure funding submissions comply with how the NDIS views disability and the ways the models can be used to maximise funding, particularly with decisions that need to be reviewed - The modules is one in a series of advanced support coordination modules, but will prove valuable to anyone wanting to understand the concept of 'disability' There is a quiz at the end of the module to confirm you have completed the module and understand the concepts presented with an 80% pass mark.
