What are your three main problems or concerns with the NDIS?

There is a frustration of going through circles with doctor referrals and reapplying etc., it’s not like she could lose the extra chromosome. Also, some of the reviews we’ve had the person doing the review didn’t seem to know what a disability is. The worst is feeling like every year we have to beg for support for our daughter, a lot of the extra costs that she incurs are not covered by NDIS either.

How do these three main problems affect you and/or others?

It means that we can’t put as much towards support for her development.

What do you think are possible solutions to those problems?

Using the NDIS funds for people with serious disabilities.

What parts of the NDIS are working well for you?

I’d hate to think of where we’d be without any support.

Is there anything else that you would like to tell the NDIS Review?

This is the best program of support but I hear that there is now a level of abuse. It’ll be great to focus on people with disabilities who can’t interact in normal society.
