Australians with hearing loss and deafblindness have reported issues of concern with the NDIS Access Pathway and Planning process.
We have outlined these concerns in a submission to the Parliamentary Committee that monitors the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
More issues are bound to arise when existing clients of the Australian Government Hearing Services Program transition to the NDIS on 1 July 2020.
Read the submission prepared by Deafness Forum of Australia in collaboration with Deafblind Australia, Audiology Australia, Neurosensory Australia, Able Australia and Senses Australia.
