Late yesterday afternoon on Stuart Robert’s last day as NDIS Minister, the NDIA released a new consultation paper called “Interventions for children on the autism spectrum”. The paper proposes radical new changes to NDIS funding and supports for Autistic children. Katharine Annear explains why this consultation paper has Autistic people outraged.
In July three-year old Jace Kirby and his family became the first South Australians to use a new early intervention service for children with autism funded under the NDIS. The results have been significant.
