NDIS Update: Independent Assessment Postponement
Occupational Therapy Australia (OTA) is pleased to advise all members that, as a result of concerted advocacy in which OTA played a key role, the NDIA has announced a postponement of the introduction of the NDIS Independent Assessments. They will now be introduced in mid-2021, with an extensive public consultation process to occur in the meantime.
This is great news for all stakeholders, including occupational therapists and their clients.
OTA wishes to thank all members who advised and supported our association as we worked to persuade the NDIA that the Independent Assessments as initially envisaged were flawed.
Your association will of course continue to play a constructive role during the period of consultation.
