IDEAS banner with the words "John Walsh on Independent Assessments".

See this submission attached, penned by John Walsh AM one of the architects of what the NDIS should have been. 

He writes about the simplicity of the proposition of the scheme needing to deliver independence, through a package of disability supports, and or access to mainstream services and supports with maximum flexibility so that people with disability receive their reasonable and necessary supports to get on with their lives of contribution. John is scathing about the never delivered supports to "tier two people" with the attendant information and capacity building supports which should have taken place with an investment of $200 million per year from the beginning, and the absence of any progress in the National Disability Standards. He concludes that the constellation of failures in the implementation of the NDIS has further stymied innovation and sector development and has negatively affected choice and control for people living with a disability.
