Dear the Hon P. Fletcher MP and the Hon S. Henderson MP

Autism Aspergers Advocacy Australia, known as A4, is disappointed that your apparent response to our letter (10/2/2019) to you about inadequate NDIS funding for autistic participants was to stop reporting funding levels for disability types.

The NDIS Quarterly reports up until our letter showed the level of funding in Figure E-5. The figure was omitted from the next (Year 6 Quarter 2) Quarterly Report.

Hiding the data does not address the issue. It does not make the issue go away.

Yours sincerely

Bob Buckley
Convenor
