Released 3 December 2013 on the International Day of People with Disability #IDPwD, is The National Disability Insurance Scheme Handbook written by Bill Madden, Janine McIlwraith and Ruanne Brell. Published by Lexis Nexis, this new book follows enactment of an historic piece of legislation that is the foundation for a national scheme promising meaningful change for people with disabilities across Australia.

 “We hope that this handbook will assist by providing an explanation of scheme legislation, the accompanying rules and some commentary on how the scheme may work in practice. It is written for people with disability, their families and carers, but also for advisors such as health professionals and lawyers.”
