A common approach for web development teams is to work in an agile environment where applications and sites are built, checked, and modified in an iterative way as the work progresses. This is opposed to a more formal waterfall approach with distinctive stages and formalised review sessions. For effective creation of an accessible website or application, it means that your “scrum” team needs to have good working accessibility knowledge and skills that they can apply and include as the definition of “done”.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is moving into its full operational rollout during 2016. The overarching message is that people with disabilities are at the centre of the system and have control over the services that they use and providers that they choose to deliver those services. For service providers it is a game-changer and one that many need help with managing.
The change of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) from trial sites to a staged rollout, starting next year in NSW and Victoria, is a major event in the disability service sector.
