THE Liberals’ Andrew Wall is organising a forum next week for Canberran’s concerned about the winding up of Therapy ACT during the transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

“Katy Gallagher and Joy Burch have announced the phased withdrawal of Therapy ACT and early intervention services commencing at the end of this year as the ACT transitions to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). However no detail has been provided to those who will be affected,” Andrew said.

“This announcement has left hundreds of families and individuals wondering what services they will be able to access. Furthermore, professionals including therapists and teachers at the early intervention units in ACT schools have been unprepared and have little in the way of information to offer families.”

The forum is being held at the ACT Legislative Assembly Reception Room on Monday May 26 1pm – 2:30pm.
