Hello. I’m Jen.
Any of you have NDIS? Do you feel any barriers with NDIS and their planners or LAC where they don’t understand your Deaf pride and the use of Auslan as your main language? Perhaps they only see the disability side without the insight of the cultural aspect. Have you experienced that? Or maybe you have seen a really great case, and you want the same for other Deaf people.
If so, then do come to the online meeting on Monday 20th March 6:30pm (AEDT). It will take up to 3 hours of your time. I will be facilitating this meeting to get feedback from the you, the Deaf community. I will be sharing the data back to NDIS so they can make adjustments and better serve the Deaf community. It should be that NDIS accommodates their Deaf clients rather than us to fit into their system. It’s our aim for NDIS to change their system to match our cultural needs.
You will get paid for your time because we believe your time is valuable. We can only accept 8 places and we have a tight timeline, so please do join to make the changes within NDIS.
Please contact us to register and see the link.
