Getting it right for children, young people and their families

In March we hosted a workshop to discuss early childhood and the transition through to school. This is often the start of many participants NDIS journey and one of the priorities of the Review.

We gathered families of young children, people with disability, disability organisations representing both people with disability and carers, researchers and independent experts to hear their lived experience, ideas and solutions.

Following this valuable first step we want to continue to engage with children and young people, their families and carers to gain further insight on how to improve your NDIS journey.

We have partnered with community organisations including Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) and Reframing Autism, Family Advocacy in NSW, Enabled Youth Disability Network in SA, Association for Children with Disability in Vic and Community Resource Unit in Qld to conduct engagement with children, young people and their families.

There have been a range of consultations held already by these groups and from May there will be series of further online and face to face group discussions that focuses on early childhood (0-8yrs) young children (9-14) years and young people (14-29yrs) with disability and their parents, family and carers.

We are also especially keen to hear from parents and/or caregivers of children with disability and young people with disability from CALD, First Nations and other diverse backgrounds with details of these focus sessions to come soon.

Be a part of the Conversation

This is your opportunity to be a part of the NDIS review, to tell us about your experiences with the NDIS and how the NDIS could better work for you.

Community organisations CYDA and Reframing Autism are holding more consultation sessions. More information can be found at their websites.  

Be a part of the Solution  

These consultations are a critical step in gaining insights from people with lived experience and hear your solutions for the NDIS. It’s your ideas and solutions that will be the basis of the Review’s recommendations to Government.

We will provide more opportunities for you to have your say in the Review over the coming months.
