NDIS Consultation Papers Released

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
