Stay informed with the CEO – consultation input summary reports on proposed NDIS changes
Recently we released the consultation input summary reports on proposed changes to the NDIS. These reports capture what we heard through the recent consultation process, which was an opportunity for participants, families, carers and the sector to provide feedback and input on the implementation of the proposed Scheme reforms.
We received 769 submissions through the consultation process, which ran from 25 November 2020 to 23 February 2021. I want to sincerely thank everyone who took the time to provide us with feedback on the papers, and contribute to making a better NDIS that is simpler, fairer and faster for participants.
Stay informed with the CEO - Joint paper on independent assessments
In March the NDIA released a joint paper with the Department of Social Services about independent assessments. The paper is the Government’s submission to the Joint Standing Committee on the NDIS inquiry on independent assessments. I talk about how our submission sets out a clear picture of the planned reforms and why they are necessary to deliver a simpler, faster, fairer and more flexible NDIS will benefit all Australians.
Stay informed with the CEO - Planning meetings
In November we released consultation papers asking for your feedback on proposed changes to some key areas of the NDIS – Access and Independent Assessments, Budgets and Planning and supporting young people through Early Childhood Early Intervention.
I have touched on planning meetings and answered some questions about planning meetings and dispelled some misinformation.
Stay informed with the CEO - Independent assessments
I want to talk to you about why we are introducing independent assessments. I’ll explain the issues we’re addressing with the assessments and where the recommendations for using independent assessments have come from.
Stay informed with the CEO - GPs and independent assessments
One of the questions that comes up regularly around independent assessments is: What role can my GP play in my assessment?
