A handful of the most common and important NDIS terms have now been translated into Auslan. This will make life easier when spelling out long terms like "information, linkages and capacity building (ILC)", which can now be described in a fast, elegant and logical new Auslan sign.
Other new translations are for these common NDIS terms; 'ordinary life', 'choice and control', 'reasonable and necessary', 'permanent and significant disability', 'informal supports', 'Early Intervention' and 'Local Area Coordinator'.
