Winter isn’t coming – it’s here! And it’s bringing our special NDIS-themed edition of SourceKids
When the NDIS was introduced in 2016, it was life-changing for people living with disability – providing dignity, security, assistance and independence. But in its most recent iteration, the NDIS has become onerous, daunting, unpredictable and mean-spirited.
With this in mind, we commissioned our first ever Source Survey – to magnify your voice and advocate for change. The results are not easy reading, but it’s important to share the devastating impact these cuts are having.
But there is an ember of hope. Also in the magazine is incoming Minister for the NDIS, Bill Shorten, who shares his vision for the NDIS. What are his priorities and what changes will he make?
Continuing the NDIS theme – we examine why therapy waitlists are so long, and how you can improve your chances of nabbing an appointment.
We also take you step by step through the process of applying to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
Plus we delve into:
- Carer Entitlements – are you getting all of yours?
- Jeans for Genes
- Latest cerebral palsy research
- Speech Milestones – when to seek help
- Is your child over scheduled?
- Wheelchair review
- Plus LOTS MORE.
