YDAS completed a submission in response to the Productivity Commission NDIS Costs position paper. This submission addresses four of the key areas of the productivity commission’s review of the NDIS. These areas are eligibility, scheme supports, interfaces, education, employment, health and housing (ILC) and readiness (participants). YDAS supports many of the recommendations made by the productivity commission, with particular emphasis on the review of ‘phone-planning’ procedures and the recruitment of specialist planners in order to reduce the burden on NDIS participants.
