Event Details

 

DDWA are developing new resources about the NDIS for people with complex communication needs. This group includes people who can’t express themselves verbally, and who may use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).

We want to explore number of questions including:

 

  • What difference will the NDIS make to your life?
  • What does it take for a communication system to be effective in the long term?
  • What would it take for you to feel prepared and confident in undertaking the NDIS planning process?
  • What does the term ‘reasonable and necessary’ mean to you?
  • What support do you need?
  • What do you want to know about the NDIS and how can the scheme support your family member?
  • How do you include AAC in the NDIS process?

 

We would like to hear from both family members and service providers about what is the critical information for a person with developmental disability and complex communication needs so they can participate in the planning process.

Please come along to an informal discussion group to let us know your thoughts and ideas.

If you cannot attend, but would still like to contribute, please send me an email – mary.butterworth@ddc.org.au
