Madden, B; McIlwraith, J; Brell, R

The NDIS seeks to support the independence and social and economic participation of people with a disability, mainly by funding the provision of reasonable and necessary supports, including early intervention supports. The NDIS establishes three main criteria for access to the scheme - age, residence and disability. 

The National Disability Insurance Scheme Handbook written by Bill Madden, Janine McIlwraith and Ruanne Brell examines the NDIS from the viewpoint of a person seeking to access the NDIS and those advising or assisting them. The three key criteria are examined, along with the powers of the NDIS Chief Executive Officer and the scope for review of adverse decisions. The important area of interplay between the NDIS and compensation entitlements is carefully scrutinised.

This handbook provides scheme users, carers, lawyers and health practitioners with an easy to understand guide with an easy to understand guide to this watershed legal development.

• An explanation of the NDIS from the viewpoint of those seeking assistance under the scheme
• Examination of the key access criteria 
• Examination of compensation entitlements
