10 areas for improvement
How can we empower you through the planning process?

Why did I have to apply through a 3rd party (ECEI Partner name) just because it was for a child?
What is the point? All they did was make me wait months, before going in to an 'intervirw' where I had already completed the questions. They did nothing on my behalf. Save money, apply direct to NDIS.

How you would define reasonable and necessary?

Give an actual definition for each disability.this will prevent inequity

What is the best way to support children with disability… and those with emerging developmental concerns?

It's not NDIS, there are just not enough providers (speech, ot etc)
ecdp is critical and needs to be expanded

How can the market be better designed, structured and supported?

It has turned into a business machine. Providers look at what they can charge under NDIS, and go for the max.
More should be nationalised instead of all these private companies

How would you build better outcomes or goals into your plan?

When we write our plan for the year, you then have to abide by it, if you don't have something as a goal then you cannot access it using your funding. It needs to be more flexible, because goals change rapidly, especially with young children
