At Deaf Children Australia, we’re thinking about how we might be able to support children and young people like you in different ways in the future. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is changing the way services will be delivered and through Deaf Children Australia, we can help you achieve your goals and dreams. So we really want you to have your say in what supports we should provide in the future. It’s so important that you help shape the services and tell us honestly what you think. So what do you need – and what do you want?
You can let us know your thoughts by answering a few questions in a short survey. We have several options to make it easier. You can choose to fill out a printed survey or complete the questions on SurveyMonkey which is easy to use. On SurveyMonkey, we have the questions in written English and Auslan. We can also provide the survey questions in other languages.
If you would like assistance from DCA to complete the survey, we can help. If you prefer to give us your answers in Auslan, please let us know and we can arrange to have a chat with you on Skype or FaceTime. We understand you may need to get help from your parents to complete the survey but we want to hear your opinions as much as possible.
We hope you can help us prepare for the future and for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which will start being rolled out more widely in 2016. The NDIS will change the way you can access services and it will help you get the support you need to reach your goals. Click for more information on the NDIS, including an Auslan clip which will be available soon.
