ACT residents who transitioned to the National Disability Insurance Scheme in its first year are less satisfied than many of their interstate counterparts and the number of eligible participants continues to exceed expectations, the latest report shows.
But for Ronnie Lawrence and his family the scheme has lived up to its life-changing promises.
Since the rollout began on July 1 last year, 911 Canberrans have had their plans approved.
But the rollout was still running behind schedule, as of March 31, and the 1222 Canberrans deemed eligible for the NDIS had exceeded expectations by 122 per cent.
