MOD.A was invited to take part in the AT Design Hub workshop in Geelong on 7 and 8 March 2018 and our Board Director Janeen Lynch attended. The workshop focused on a proposed new process for assessing NDIS participants for their AT needs and for home modifications. A report from the workshop was drawn up by the NDIA and circulated to those present, including MOD.A, prior to Easter.
Whilst MOD.A welcomes a new approach to delivering home modifications to NDIS participants we continue to have significant concerns about NDIA's proposed new approach, and have put together a submission which outlines those concerns and makes recommendations to strengthen it. The submission represents a great deal of work done by MOD.A Board Directors and MOD.A members, as well as other stakeholders, and draws on the data gathered from the survey of MOD.A members about their experiences to date operating under the NDIS. It has been delivered to the NDIA with an invitation for further dialogue.
