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


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

I am a therapist and see it affecting many families in a variety of ways including stress, anxiety and more pressure on the families

What do you think are possible solutions to those problems?

A better system where everyone is given a fair screening process giving clients access to same amounts of money.
A wider incorporation of diagnosis with the realisation of the affects these have the on children.
People stepping in to run the NDIS that have a clear understanding of DSM V and everything that comes with therapist including the importance of constancy and the freedom of choice of the client to pick their own provider.

What parts of the NDIS are working well for you?

The ndis supplying families with money to help fund the therapies.

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

There are many inconsistencies throughout the scheme including many grey areas.
Some clients are inundated with funds where as other, sometimes higher needs families, are left with 1 therapy session a month.
The equality is not there.
