The NDIS is failing to catch children with late-onset difficulties – the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in selected sites in 2016 signified a shift in cultural views about disability. Historical views were based on a medical model derived from deficit, dysfunction and impairment. Today, we ask that building capacity, inclusion and access be the way forward for people and young children living with disabilities. However, medical evidence is still required to establish entitlement, and some children with late-onset delays miss out and can be disadvantaged under the medical model.
