Capacity Building framework is the key program used by all the disability care Sydney service providers. This NDIS capacity building is the process in which older adults and people with disability develop their skills and abilities to perform functions, solve problems, set and achieve objectives, and understand and deal with their development needs in a broader context and in a sustainable manner. This approach empowers the NDIS participant to facilitate their own personal development, moving from the person whose ‘capacity is being developed’ to the ‘capacity builder.
Here are prime four reasons why capacity building is essential
Capacity building shifts the narrative around disability care services from a deficit, needs-based model to an abundance, strength-building model. This allows NDIS participants, their parents and carers, as well as disability service providers Sydney to approach disability services with a growth mindset. Building on the strengths of participants, rather than focusing on their disability, empowers participants to become life-long learners.
At OSAN Ability Assist, we know that people need time and on-going, long-term support to reach their goals. We also know that it takes a multi-disciplinary team to help participants reach their full potential. Most professional disability support workers use variety of strategies and tactics at the individual, organisational and systemic levels that make it sustainable and effective. From teaching life skills like cooking, to develop ping vocational skills in the workplace, capacity building overcomes multi-dimensional barriers to achieving goals and wraps a multitude of services around an individual.
Problem Solving Skills
NDIS capacity building programs necessitate the development of problem-solving skills. They take a problem-based approach that acknowledges participants as life-long learners, who will continuously learn new skills as they encounter new challenges. Participants play an active role in setting their own goals, choosing the right development strategies for themselves, and reflecting on their own progress. At OSAN Ability Assist, we’ve seen how this helps participants grow in confidence, as well as ability.
Helps Deal With Real-Life Situation
As NDIS capacity building programs grow the skills and capabilities of participants, they better prepare participants for real life. Focusing on developing self-care skills, communication and contributing to the household and community, capacity building aims to help participants lead independent lives and better participate in society.
