We caught up with See Differently Support Coordinator and NDIS expert Connie Miari to find out exactly what Support Coordination is and how it can help you to achieve your goals.

It was an early start, Connie is up at 5 am each day, exercising before she heads to See Differently HQ to help people navigate the NDIS.


Q: Why would I need support coordination?

A: If you have an NDIS Plan which includes Support Coordination Funding and want to make the most out of an existing plan or are confused about the NDIS environment, we’re here to take the stress out of it for you.

Q: How is See Differently Support Coordination different?

A: Our Support Coordinators have an exceptional understanding around vision loss. We’re highly trained and have lived experience. As someone with a vision impairment myself, I understand the unique challenges experienced by people with vision loss. We’re here to connect individuals with the best services and supports for them – to live the life they choose!

We align clients to the best services for their needs, utilising See Differently services, as well as a range of other providers.

Q: What can I expect at my first appointment?

A: Where possible we’ll meet with you at home, where we’ll discuss your plan, and your goals and how you’re managing everyday activities. Your support coordinator will then pull together a practical plan, connecting you with services and products to build your capacity, and working within your budget. We have access to a huge range of high-quality services including low vision optometry, counselling, occupational therapy, support workers, technology products and training. We can link to external organsiations for home cleaning, garden maintenance and lots more!

For Connie, no day is the same, and that’s just how she likes it! From meeting with clients and their families, to coordinating services, reviewing service agreements, checking in on client’s progress and future supports and reviewing future goals, each day is action packed.

And the most important part of support coordination for Connie?

“Helping to empowering people with a disability to be a part of their community, to live independently and achieve their dreams”.
