OTA Provides Evidence to NDIS Senate Committee Hearing

Published Wednesday 22 May 2024 

On Tuesday 21 May 2024, Occupational Therapy Australia presented evidence to the Community Affairs Legislation Senate Committee: Inquiry into the National Disability Insurance Scheme Amendment (Getting the NDIS Back on Track No. 1) Bill 2024. 

Priscilla Ennals, President of OTA, and Michelle Oliver, General Manager of Occupational Therapy, represented OTA at the hearing. 

OTA called for the passage of the Bill to be paused until the Government provides a response to the NDIS Review, so that participants and providers can properly understand the government’s disability reform agenda, and the impacts of these changes.

The hearing began yesterday from 11:30am AEST and is scheduled to conclude today (Wednesday 22 May 2024).
