    I think this article is not quite accurate. If a prospective Participant has a medical condition that is disabling- I would try accessing NDIS with a physical disability that has a medical origin. You would put “physical disability” as the primary disability and get an OT assessment about its effects on the six NDIS functional domains along with reports that confirm permanence and the need for lifelong supports. There was an AAT decision that stated nowhere in the NDIS Act says a chronic condition can’t ALSO be a disability. Though to get access might require a Review and Appeal to succeed. But as this article says- the whole circus shouldn’t be so rigid and difficult to navigate.
