Submission 12 from IDEAS.

Higher rates of relinquishing by parents pushed to extremis.

@lindareynoldswa Who pays for this. And is this “fair”?

#DoNoHarm #HandsOffOurNDIS
@criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 6. Rare Genetic Diseases.

“quantum level difference in understanding”

@lindareynoldswa Is a 20 minute assessment by someone not qualified in these complex areas - fair and safe?

#DoNoHarm #HandsOffOurNDIS

@criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 14. Homeless.

#IndependentAssessments impose barriers on people who are #Homeless or at risk of homelessness

@lindareynoldswa How will this be fair for homeless people?

#DoNoHarm #HandsOffOurNDIS @criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 15. Spinal Cord Injury.

50 hours of supervision for OT graduates.

@lindareynoldswa Is 1 day training adequate for assessors without this experience?

#DoNoHarm #HandsOffOurNDIS @criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 16. Aboriginal Health Service SA.

IA framework…no mention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People with disabilities.

@lindareynoldswa Why?

#HandsOffOurNDIS @criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 25. Parents caring for son with intellectual disability - on his #IndependentAssessment

@lindareynoldswa Parents think this won’t lead to a fair decision for their son.

#HandsOffOurNDIS @criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 38. The deafblind experience of #IndependentAssessments

“Deaf blindness is not understood”.

@lindareynoldswa How did the data become so corrupted? Not fair for these people.

#HandsOffOurNDIS @criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 41. Specialist Disability Accommodation.

@lindareynoldswa Many submissions talk about safety risks.

#HandsOffOurNDIS @criprights @SquigglyRick @Jordonsteele @EveryAustralian
Submission 13. Ros Madden who provided advice to #NDIA on Functional Capacity Assessment Framework.
