Julie’s tip the balance story

Tipping the balance logo showing a smiley emoji and a sad emoji on scales with the NDIS logo underneath

daughter got accepted right off for autism , eyesight and ‘other disaiblities. her eyesight is a problem while fighting to get a scooter with a canopy. she has deformed feet so needs shoes as she goes through quite a few. ( 3 pairs we got funded for ). though not through the guy we got them from under MASS funding which were the better shoes. I dont know why the NDIS chose eyesight as a main disaiblity because it isnt really. Having really done nothing since high school ( though not from a lack of trying ) she needs support to get out and do something but so far we havent found an organisation that can /will handle autism ( aspergers ). she needs housing or will if anything happens to me and it has to meet certain criteria. as for me well I applied for it for Rheumatoid arthritis , and was initially refused, they said RA wasnt permanent or likely to be. I also have issues with my feet due to RA and other things the Podiatrist had trouble getting shoes to suit from her supplier ( again we can get them else where but funding is a problem. Knowing what we have funding for how much is left . the whole thing is a night mare
