Learning about participants with sensory disability and neurodegenerative conditions in the NDIS

Two detailed reports are now available on the NDIS website about participants with a sensory disability in the NDIS and participants with neurodegenerative conditions in the NDIS.

The report on sensory disability is about NDIS participants with hearing, visual, or other sensory and speech impairments.

The report on neurodegenerative conditions is about NDIS participants with the following five conditions: muscular dystrophy, Huntington’s disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s disease.

Both reports are divided into four sections and cover: participant characteristics, participant experience of the NDIS, plan supports and payments for supports, as well as participant goals, outcomes and satisfaction.

These reports provide rich information about the experiences of these participants and will help the NDIA, sector, providers and other interested parties understand how to work best with them to achieve their goals.

The NDIA regularly releases information about the Scheme on the NDIS Data and Insights website.
