How does it translate to people with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families?
Written by Dr Nancy Sadka
The National Disability Insurance Scheme was established to provide people with disabilities and their family choice and control over their supported funding. It is based on a business model where the person with ASD is the consumer who will be able to purchase services provided by different agencies to live his or her life to the fullest. Families and individuals with Autism need to be well informed on what to expect in terms of funding, support, and where to access tools which are necessary for planning under the NDIS. There is such an abundance of information about this subject on the social media and the different websites that at times it can become difficult to navigate and to sort out the facts from fiction.
