Since it's introduction in 2013, the National Disability Insurance Scheme has become a major support for many autistic Australians and their families.

This part of A4's forum is for members to discuss the NDIS and how it affects them, as well as the operation of the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) whose job it is to run the NDIS.

Since the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) is responsible for some of the external review of NDIS decisions for individual NDIS participants, we also have a section for discussion of AAT-related matters.
