Developmental Disability WA (DDWA) have published an easy-read book that tells the WA and federal governments what they need to spend more money on to help people with developmental disability.  

How the Government Needs to Help People with Developmental Disability covers sixteen areas where extra resources, new systems and services, or extra funding are needed. To improve the daily lives of people with developmental and intellectual disability, each section recommends major reforms and new services as well as smaller improvements.  

It is the latest in a library of easy-read resources on the DDWA website. The easy-read format makes it suitable for support workers and families to share with people with developmental and intellectual disability. 

DDWA would like service providers, key stakeholders and the wider community to read and support the recommendations in the book, which has also been sent to federal and state politicians.  

For further information, please contact Developmental Disability WA.
