SDA Supply and Demand in WA - What the data is and isn't telling us.
We delve into the NDIS data to see where the gaps are. But just as important is understanding how to gauge future demand and determine pipeline data that isn't reported.

Short term Accommodation and Medium Term Accommodation, and how they fit into the SDA world.
What Short Term Accommodation and Medium Term Accommodation funding is for and why it is important to understand how it can be a part of an SDA investment strategy.

Who are the key stakeholders when developing SDA development?

What to look for in a SDA property manager.

Sailing through your NDIS audit with ease


The "Sailing through your NDIS audit with ease" presentation is designed for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) providers who are preparing for an NDIS audit. The presentation covers practical tips and advice on how to simplify your registration groups, identify relevant standards, and develop a plan of action to address any gaps in your organisation's compliance.


You'll also learn how to involve staff and participants in the preparation process, organise evidence for the auditor, and take control of the audit process. The session includes real-world examples of successful audit preparation to help you get your organisation audit-ready with ease.

Funding challenges and process  

  • Conflict between what participants want and NDIA wants to pay for

  • Conflict between core supports funding (e.g. SIL) and SDA funding

  • Appendix G

  • Why obtaining SDA funding can be a long and challenging process




Percentage of Growth and Gaps in  SDA in WA. – what does this mean for providers and stakeholders?

The role of an OT in assessing for SDA eligibility  


The role of an OT in assessing and recommend SDA design type, dwelling type, occupancy, whether OOA is needed       

With a developing housing market, occupational therapists have a central role in supporting and empowering people with disability and their families to make informed housing choices. 

Delegates will understand factors that restrict/enable a sustainable home, from an OT perspective and Build knowledge of dynamic assessment approaches and outcomes measures in planning for and enabling housing transition.

Separation of housing and care ; why participants need choice and control over their care and should be able to change providers and support workers at their discretion ; exclusive arrangements should never be implemented.

Beyond the SDA Design Standards.

When designing for SDA it’s not often the case that the SDA participants are known to the designer, or have any role in the design process, and the same applies equally to the staff that may be working within the building.  

This places additional requirements on the designer to ensure that the design has carefully considered a range of considerations that extend beyond compliance with the SDA Design Standards.

The SDA Design Standards are silent on so many aspects of design such as how many bathrooms to provide, how large an office should be, the design of living areas, and the like.


 We are for example seeing more widespread adoption of ensuites, the provision of secondary laundries, greater emphasis on staff amenities throughout our recent projects.


In addition to the SDA Design Standards there are also the requirements of the National Construction Code as well as local planning controls that would influence the design.
