NDIS and Stuttering

The Australian Speak Easy Association (ASEA) is exploring ways that members may be able to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and have already commenced interaction with senior officers of NDIS the nature of stuttering.

The NDIS is a Federal government scheme designed to assist with the provision of grants to persons who have permanent disabilities.

ASEA is seeking to find out from people who stutter (and parents of children who stutter) what their experiences have been in trying to become an eligible participant for NDIS programs.

If you, or anyone you know, have had experiences with NDIS in seeking help with a stutter, the ASEA would like to hear about your experiences.
