This year the NDIS ceased funding swallowing assessments and development of mealtime management plans for individuals with a disability, saying this is the responsibility of the health system. This change has been extremely devastating for so many people with a disability and their families in the mid North Coast region as it has restricted their access to vital therapy. All Together Therapy has worked with the Council for Intellectual Disabilities on their campaign, Hard to Swallow. Since advocating for two of our clients, Ellen and Tanisha, the government has decided that NDIS will temporarily continue funding swallowing assessments and mealtime management plans. We will be continuing to advocate for our clients during these changes.
