The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) represents a conceptual and practical shift in the funding and provision of disability services in Australia. Students will be introduced to the human rights and economic principles influencing the design of the NDIS, as well as the broader policy context (i.e. the National Disability Strategy 2010-2020) in which it operates. The course will focus on contemporary approaches to disability service provision and governance, including person-centred planning, supported decision-making, and interfaces with other public sectors and community resources.
