The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Australia to respect the choices of people with disabilities, bring a sense of control into their lives, and enhance their social and economic participation in everyday life. The speakers will address what it takes to achieve choice and control for people with disabilities. Professor Tom Shakespeare will draw on UK policy reform and the lived experience of people with disabilities in that country. Sue Salthouse will discuss how Australia is doing in achieving choice, control and participation for people with disabilities as the NDIS approaches full scheme implementation across Australia.
