There’s a new mobile game called “Extreme Wheelchairing”, which you can find for free on the App store, or Google Play.
This is a game where you manoeuvre around 20 different levels of a virtual landscape avoiding all sorts of obstacles and so on. It’s much like dozens of other videos game most of us have played at one time or another.
But with one difference.
On the weekend the NSW Premier Mike Baird promised to roll out early intervention services under the NDIS for up to 2,000 young people with disability in Penrith and the Blue Mountains from September this year if he is re-elected.
It’s the everyday things that are sometimes the most challenging for mums, dads and carers of children with disability. Tasks like getting the weekly groceries can be that much harder when you’re trying to juggle a trolley and a wheelchair at the same time. The move by Coles to introduce new trolleys for kids with disability into many of its supermarkets will make this one everyday task a little easier.
With over 500 registered attendees, the ACT NDIS conference is set to be one of the largest, most comprehensive and practical events covering the NDIS held to date. Throughout the conference, we’ll be live blogging to bring you rolling coverage of all the latest news, views and discussion from on the ground.
The NDIS is designed to give choice and control to people with disability. There are many and varied ways that people with disability will want to live and we have listed a few below.

The response from the Agency on this vital issue was disappointing, bureaucratic and hard to read. We thought we’d have a go at de-coding it for you because on the question of housing, people with disability and the NDIS, we need it to be crystal-clear.
It’s great to see some of our cultural icons and natural places finally getting on board and taking accessibility more seriously. Here are two examples we’ve seen lately.
Every new big policy comes with a whole new set of terms and jargon. Here we have tried to decode some that we’ve heard.
Willow’s mum Janelle wasn’t sure her daughter would be eligible for the NDIS. She decided to give it a go, applied to the Scheme, and now the family is seeing real benefits.
We all want the NDIS to succeed. Thousands of lives are already being improved at the trial sites, and we know eventually the NDIS will make a huge difference for nearly half a million Australians. But to ensure the NDIS works well for everybody, we need people to feel safe and confident using it.
