The NDIS has released a number of papers for public consultation.
Among them is tge Independent Assessments paper. Independent Assessments were due to be implemented in February 2021, but have now been delayed for approx. 6 months to allow a consultation period with the public. The NDIA have already decided however, that Independent Assessments will go ahead, and the consultation paper only addresses how it will work. This will be a big change as information from the Independent Assessment will be used to determine a participant’s budget.
The papers for consultation are:
- Access and eligibility policy for independent assessments
- Planning policy for personalised budgets and plan flexibility
- Supporting young children and their families early, to reach their full potential
- Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Implementation Reset- Project Consultation Report
Visit the have your say page to view the consultation papers and also to make a submission.
Feedback closes at 10am on Tuesday 23 February 2021.
