In partnership with Children’s Health Queensland, Griffith University is bringing together a range of experts and people with lived experiences to discuss how families of children with disability and complex medical needs can work together with children’s health services and others to optimise readiness for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
This symposium will explore:
- How health services for children with complex needs are getting ready for the NDIS?
- What Townsville families say about their experience
- What pediatric communities can do to prepare for the NDIS?
- What families and those who work with children with additional health needs can do to get NDIS ready?
- Sue Tape growing the NDIS mind set and skill set
- Two families sharing their experience of the NDIS in Townsville
- Dr Theresa Carroll with how our health services are preparing
- Ellen Beaumont what professionals can do to get ready for the NDIS
The venue and presentation formats are fully inclusive for people with disability, families and carers, with concession tickets available. Auslan interpreters, live captioning, hearing loop, accessible tagged PDFs and on-site support workers will be available on the day. Please inform us when booking
