My son has waited 2 yrs longer than he should have for a classroom aide due to standardised assessments! They hinder not help.

I’m signing because I think NDIS should trust professionals already assisting the disabled.

Because everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity and have their right to be assessed based on their personal needs.. Not a standardised service. It's about equity. The government needs to stop cutting back funding for our most vulnerable.

There is no way these assessments will be able to capture the persons capacity in the time frame they allege.

Use of Independent Assessors Undermines the entire scheme as well as all Allied Health, the role of Support Coordinators and LACs and ESPECIALLY THE PARTICIPANT by removing Choice and Control. IA's will cost the scheme billions in an increase in AAT legal representation, reviews, complaints and most of all, funded supports as it will create significant barriers for participants increasing mental health supports, carer supports and more weight on funded supports compared to informal supports. Participants already have barriers in building capacity due to the scheme. This is a bandaid reactive solution to a problem that could be fixed proactively, efficiently and sustainably by strengthening existing foundations before building new policies and processes.

The NDIS was designed to promote Inclusion of people with a Disability not an excluding insurance system!
