Media on the needs of people with disabilities ...

... in the run-up to tomorrow's COAG meeting:

Martial arts classes, dancing and drumming lessons are part of the package Karim Bouchafaa has negotiated under a NSW pilot disability program, which demonstrates the potential for the coming national insurance scheme ... a good example of what could be achieved under a National Disability Insurance Scheme is highlighted in this Sue Dunlevy's story in The Australian today

Karim's mother was also interviewed on ABC radio this morning, followed by a talk-back session with Linda Mottram; and media in most states have highlighted the NDIS and the role of COAG over the last few days.

And the Sydney Morning Herald focussed on the funding arrangements: Disability scheme in funding deadlock.
