The NDIA would like to reassure people with disability, their families and carers that any autistic person eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will continue to receive the reasonable and necessary supports they need.
The National Disability Insurance Agency has officially launched the new NDIS website following a six week trial.
Read about the improvements being made to the NDIS pathway, including improvements planned for 2019.
The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission will roll out across Vic, Qld, Tas, ACT and NT from 1 July 2019. The NDIS Commission began operating in NSW and SA on 1 July 2018, WA will transition from 1 July 2020.
The Minister for Social Services, Paul Fletcher, recently announced the NDIS will fund, as an interim arrangement, the initial assessment, development and monitoring of meal plans for people with dysphagia receiving support in a community setting.
In December last year, the NDIA released a test version of the new NDIS website, as part of a six week trial with the community, asking people to provide feedback on the new site. We are getting closer to the end of the test period and looking to capture as much feedback as possible and prepare to officially move to the new site later in January.
