Jargon and the NDIS

By Bill Gamack - posted Monday, 17 July 2017


I remain certain that the NDIS is what we need to improve the lives of people with disability, and their families and carers. And that will mean a better Australia for us all.

The steps the NDIA have taken in addressing the many NDIS issues proves that they too are serious about achieving real results. But please, do us all a favour and scrap the double talk.

People with disability and their families have gone through a lot in their lives, and they can handle an upfront, frank discussion about changes that directly impact them. Not only can they handle it, but being on the receiving end of the NDIS' teething problems, they most certainly deserve it.

Now that's the kind of message that really cuts through the torrent of white noise.
