NDIA webinar available for viewing NOW…..

Message from AMAZE:

Below is a link to the NDIA webinar about the rollout in Victoria that was held on 1 October.  It has recently been uploaded onto the website for those who were not able to join the live session.  It is a 1 hour long session with a panel, including someone from DHHS, the NDIA and a parent of a participant in the Barwon trial site.  The session has some basic information and then answers questions that were asked by those participating in the live webinar.

Topics covered included:

  • Eligibility criteria
  • when there will be information available and how people will transition into the scheme
  • information around capacity building/local area coordination which includes the opportunity for individuals/families to purchase support planning around understanding the disability/diagnosis, the decision making process and options to purchase supports. (29 minute mark).
