NDIS FUNDING FOR CHILDREN UNDER 6

This petition had 123 supporters


The NDIS was rolled out in July 2016 in the Hunter and let's be honest it's been misshandled by the government and children under 6 in the Hunter have been left high and dry by the NDIS.

My boy who has severe Autism affecting his speech and communication and other issues that affect his life on daily basis.

My boy, Sebastian who is now 3 years old has been doing occupational therapy and speech therapy since he was 14 months old has been told he can longer do his therapy because the NDIS is refusing to accept his plan done by Aspect even though we referred to ASPECT by the NDIS for early intervention plans, So far the only reason for this is a lack of resources available.

My boy was accepted by the NDIS back in November 2016, where we told the next step was the planning meeting, after many attempts to contact the NDIS to arrange a planning meeting only to be told to keep waiting.

Finally we had a gut full of being stuffed around over the phone, my other half went into the office in person to demand answers, this where we were told the NDIS is no longer doing planning meetings for children under 6.

We were told we had to get it done via a 3rd party either Aspect or Hunter Prelude.

Hunter prelude had a 6 month waiting list, but Aspect were able to squeeze our meeting in after we told them our story.

We had our planning meeting with Aspect only to be told that NDIS is refusing to even look at the plan conducted by Aspect.

I need as many people to share and sign this petition to send a clear message to the NDIS and the Government that is playing politics  with our children will not be tolerated.
