Broken Hill family says they’ve been left without essential services in
the transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Since she was two years old, Jezabella Ortega , now ten, has made use of a variety of disability services to manage her cerebral palsy, but moving to the NDIS has left her without an important component.
Her current service provider, Novita, is
no longer able to give her the specialist physiotherapy she needs
because the NDIS won’t fund travel requirements.
Jezabella’s mother, Jonnah Ortega, said her child, and other children in the city, were missing out on essential services.
