Making NDIS information accessible.
In response to user feedback and research, the NDIS is actively working to overcome language barriers and improve the accessibility of its content. The NDIS information booklets are now accessible to people who are blind or deaf, marking the first time this has been made possible.
The booklet can now be read in five new languages, including Assyrian, Dari, Khmer, Korean and Turkish. Existing language options include Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Filipino (Tagalog), French, Hindi, Greek, Italian, Macedonian, Samoan, Spanish and Vietnamese.
Digital braille and Auslan video translations have also been added for the first time, meaning NDIS participants who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or with low vision, can now access important information about their NDIS plan.
The booklet updates include legislation changes, simpler and more consistent content, and information on the my NDIS app.
The booklets are a valuable resource for participants, their families and carers, and people with disability who want to apply for the NDIS, understand how a plan is created, and use their NDIS plan.
