Comment on DSS National Disability Strategy options paper

Autism Aspergers Advocacy Australia responded to DSS's Options Paper on continuing the old National Disability Strategy (NDS) which they call a "new" strategy.

DSS's Options Paper shows no evidence of input from the disability community, especially input that says the previous strategy didn't work and substantial change is needed.

It also shows that it does not understand human rights in Australia but still tries to take a human rights perspective.

A4 is clear that there are a number of serious issues that mean DSS is not an appropriate agency to be trying to develop an NDS.

A4's submission is available for download from the link below.
