Adjournment

National Disability Insurance Scheme—independent assessments

MS DAVIDSON (Murrumbidgee) (2.03): I rise to speak today following situations over the last few weeks where processes could have been much improved by co-design.

When the deep consultation required in co-design is replaced by last-minute comments on legislation or policy that is essentially a done deal, this puts a burden on people with disability to retrofit that policy or legislation. This is where the phrase “nothing about us without us” has gained momentum. I can recommend a fantastic co-design guide by People with Disabilities WA.
