More news on Independent Assessments

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has released some more information this week about the introduction of compulsory Independent Assessments.

They have released some information on the first trial which was held between November 2018 and April 2019.  There is also some information about six of the tools that will be used during the assessments.

The NDIA have also announced that a second trial using these tools will start up again in October, as the initial trial was cancelled earlier in the year due to COVID-19.

You can find further information below.
