Our Choice, Our Voice: Talking About the NDIS

Made by people with intellectual disability for people with intellectual disability.

In this fantastic video, people with disability introduce and interview each other about their lives, the NDIS, peer support and CDAH.

Leigh, Erin, Meredith, Jessica, Belinda and Jacob welcome you into their lives to see that typical, ordinary lives are achievable for all of us.

Hear participants talk firsthand about the NDIS and how it works, and be motivated by their commitment to sharing their experiences to help others.

With special thanks to 3x3 Media and the University of NSW Intellectual Disability Behaviour Support Program for inviting us to make this video. It was premiered in the UK in September.
