I am a strong supporter of the NDIS. It will bring much needed help and support to many families. However, I also have concerns about the way some people are manipulating the NDIS which could threaten the integrity of the scheme in the longer term. This is particularly applicable to the over-diagnosis of autism.
For these reasons, I agreed to take part in an article by Mike Steketee published in the online forum Inside Story in November 2017.
