The NDIS has released new Disability Dashboards today.
These dashboards offer a new way to access and understand data and insights about the main disability types represented in the NDIS.
Each dashboard contains key insights about demographics, supports and providers for NDIS participants within the disability group. They also include details about the outcomes achieved by these NDIS participants and their experiences.
Dashboards are available for:
- Acquired brain injury
- Cerebral Palsy
- Developmental delay
- Down Syndrome
- Global development delay
- Hearing impairment
- Intellectual disability
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Psychosocial disability
- Spinal cord injury
- Visual impairment
The dashboards build on the work of previous in-depth reports and will be refreshed annually. Data is also available in an Excel format, which will be released quarterly.
Releasing data about the NDIS is part of our ongoing commitment in the Participant Service Charter to be transparent.
- Autism: 73% of parents and carers for children with autism felt their child had become more independent as a result of the NDIS, at their most recent plan reassessment, compared to 63% at their first reassessment.
- Intellectual disability: For participants aged 15 to 64 years with an intellectual disability, 27% reported they had a paid job at their latest reassessment. This compares to 23% for the Scheme as a whole.
- Psychosocial disability: 76% of participants aged 15 years and over with a psychosocial disability said the NDIS has helped them have more choice and control over their life, aligning with the Scheme average rate at 76%.
- Developmental delay: For children aged 0 to before starting school, 93% of parents and carers for children with developmental delay thought the NDIS improved their child’s access to specialist services at their latest plan reassessment, compared to 90% at their first reassessment.
