14th NRHC Recommendation 622

Children with disabilities are often unable to access specialist support due to recruitment and retention issues in rural and remote areas. Therefore, disability training and support should be rolled out to target all mainstream and disability support staff working within the community, not just the specialists. This will allow for all services within a child and families life to implement early intervention programs based on evidence based strategies. Technology is one way to roll out such a program.
