At the heart of the Agency are our participants, always
Our first priority is to ensure each participant, no matter where located, lives the life they want today and into the future.
Meet five year old Reece Child from South Australia, who loves to hang from the monkey bars and jump on a trampoline like most boys his age.
When he was a baby, doctors initially diagnosed Reece with cerebral palsy, but later discovered he has his own unique syndrome consisting of, among other things, hypotonia (low muscle tone), which impacts his mobility, muscle strength and swallowing.
Today, not only does Reece not need a wheelchair; he can run, climb trees, kick a football, ride a balance bike and walk on a balance beam. He has tried pre-Auskick and his dad says he ‘absolutely nailed it’.
Reece’s parents say his astonishing progress is all thanks to early intervention through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and provider Novita.
