Don’t miss this exclusive workshop, that will explain the Specialist Disability Accomodation (SDA) pathway and show support coordinators and allied health professionals how to write effective housing plans for their clients.


The Summer Foundation is at the forefront of demystifying Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). Our SDA eligibility expert is Penny Paul, who is the author of our extensive library of NDIS housing resources. Penny is hosting this workshop for NDIS professionals. 

Only 6% of NDIS participants will be eligible for SDA – and SDA will not be funded for participants who have not completed a housing plan. If you’ve been contracted by a participant with funding to Investigate Housing Solutions* or for Improved Daily Living**, it is vital that you provide the NDIA with a housing plan that includes the evidence it needs to determine whether the participant is eligible for SDA funding.


Penny will give an overview of SDA and explain how the NDIA applies the SDA Rules to determine a participant’s eligibility. Penny will explain how to use the Summer Foundation’s NDIS housing resources and work through how to contract allied health housing reports to develop a successful housing plan. 

You will complete a practical exercise to apply what you’ve learnt, receive individual advice and have an opportunity to have all your SDA questions answered. 


Workshop attendees will also receive a USB packed with the Summer Foundation’s latest templates and guides – everything you need for developing a quality housing plan. 

* Funding for support coordinators to prepare a housing plan (up to $12,000) 

**Funding for allied health professionals to prepare housing assessments (up to $15,500)


  • Support Coordinators and other NDIS providers involved in the development of housing plans
  • Allied Health Professionals providing evidence towards housing plans.


The Summer Foundation has leading advice on SDA eligibility and what information the NDIA needs to make a decision about SDA funding. Professionals attending these sessions will learn about:

  • NDIA decision making around SDA
  • What evidence needs to be delivered in a housing plan
  • The most suitable language to use in report writing
  • How to develop a high quality plan


The Summer Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organisation changing human service policy and practice related to young people in nursing homes.  Your workshop presenters have a background in disability and extensive knowledge and experience about the NDIS and aged care.
