NAT has endorsed the following key points as crucial to the implementation of the NDIS:
1) Eligibility from diagnosis to support early intervention to reduce the economic and social burden and improve quality of life for people living with neurological and progressive neuromuscular conditions;
2) Disease sensitive and ongoing assessments be undertaken by experienced practitioners with expert knowledge in the field of neurological and progressive neuromuscular conditions;
3) Seamless anticipatory care and support based on assessed needs for people affected by neurological and progressive neuromuscular conditions throughout their life journey. Assessment processes must be able to anticipate changing need.
NAT also support Neurological Alliance of Australia and their campaign.
