‘I’m the Boss’ booklets

The premise of the ‘I’m the Boss’ resource is that people with disability are in charge of their lives. We hope this resource will be useful for people negotiating the new NDIS system – with its aim of ‘choice and control’, as well as dealing with other health and community services in South Australia.

‘I’m the Boss’ is a series of seven booklets that offer guidance and suggestions for:-

  • What are my rights?
  • Getting ready to talk to an individual worker or person from a health or community service
  • Examples of questions you can ask
  • How do I think the talk went?
  • What do I do next?
  • Examples of questions you can ask a healthcare worker when you are sick
  • Important information
