Consultation with families of children with a disability: NSW Ombudsman

Do services work together to help you?
Are you getting help to support your child to live at home?
We are very interested to hear from families about:

Specialist disability services including:
• information about disability services and being taken on to receive services
• intensive family support and other family support
• respite
• early intervention
• therapy
• case management
• transition support services (transition to school, from school to work, and when leaving care to adult disability services.)
• support for carers
• physical aids and equipment
• the way specialist services work together and link to mainstream services for families and children.

Services for families in the community such as:
• child care, out-of-school hours care and vacation care
• pre-school and primary and secondary school
• health services
• public transport
• sport and recreation.

It is important that children with a disability and their families get the help they need. We will let government know what families say about the support and services they need.
