  • NDIS – Navigating the Void

    $50.00 (member price: $25.00)

    NDIS – Navigating the Void

    NDIS has been central in the Sign Language Interpreting and Translating space since 2013. Here we are a decade on and many of us still have questions regarding what best business practice is when working in the NDIS space as a Non-Registered Service Provider. Questions such as:

    • Do we need service agreements when working as a Non Registered Service Provider
    • Do I need service agreements with every person I interpret for?
    • Why are we consumables in the NDIS price guide?
    • Do I need to  keep notes on my interpreting jobs?
    • Can I be audited by NDIS and if so, what do I need to show them?
    • What are the proposed changes to the NDIS payment process?

    We will be joined by Leigh McPherson Joshua Quinn for a discussion looking at the NDIS system and we can ensure we are well positioned for any changes that may be coming.

     Who this course is for:

    Interpreters and translators looking to gain more insight into NDIS and our obligations when working within their framework. What should interpreters and translators be doing to meet NDIS standards and expectations?

    Leigh McPherson

    Leigh is the Founder and CEO of Live More Life PTY LTD, a support agency in Bundaberg, QLD, dedicated to assisting the Deaf and individuals with Neurological Disabilities. I also own Auslan Synergy, an interpreting services company, and serve as the CEO of The Good Life Community Services PTY LTD, which provides support coordinators fluent in Auslan.

    With over 15 years of experience in the Deaf community, I have held various roles including:

    • Deaf Education
    • Providing interpreting services.
    • Offering forensic liaison support.

    Leighs  involvement with the NDIS rollout began in 2016 in Bundaberg. During the early years, I played a crucial role in supporting the Deaf community’s transition to the NDIS, working closely with consultants, NDIA representatives, the commission, and local government to address the growing needs of interpreters within the NDIS framework.

    As the CEO of a Deaf-aware business and interpreting service, I continue to collaborate with consultants and the Commission, striving to create a bridge for interpreters in the NDIS space and ensure the Deaf community receives full and appropriate access amid ongoing governmental changes.


    Joshua Quinn, owner of WatykevSupports and QR consultancy

    As an Audit Compliance Officer, NDIS Consultant, Policy and Procedures Builder, and NDIS Training Provider, I bring a comprehensive skillset to ensure regulatory adherence and organizational efficiency.

    In my role as Audit Compliance Officer, I meticulously review internal and external records to verify compliance with applicable laws and standards. I assess risks, identify deficiencies, and develop action plans to mitigate non-compliance.

    My expertise in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) enables me to provide expert guidance to service providers and offer training for both NDIS providers and independents. I assist with NDIS registration, optimize service plans, and ensure compliance with Quality Standards and Guidelines.

    As a Policy and Procedures Builder, I create and maintain robust policies and procedures that define best practices, streamline operations, and minimize risk. I work closely with stakeholders to identify needs, conduct research, and develop clear and concise documentation.

    My commitment to accuracy, attention to detail, and effective communication enables me to effectively execute my responsibilities. I am adept at identifying areas for improvement, developing proactive solutions, and fostering a culture of compliance within organizations.

    Through my training programs, I empower NDIS providers and independents with the knowledge and skills they need to navigate the NDIS landscape, meet regulatory requirements, and provide high-quality services to participants.

  • ASLIA Interpreters- An Emerging Profession. 1990 – 2013 (NSW)


    Please note: this event is open only to those who were Auslan/English or Deaf interpreters (this includes non-accredited interpreting) in either a paid or voluntary capacity between 1990 – 2013. Those who meet these criteria are invited to this weekend and to complete the online survey. ASLITA membership is not required for this event however your memory and stories are.

    The “ASLIA Interpreters: An emerging profession 1990 – 2013” is a two-day event that will document the evolution of interpreting as a new profession throughout this period in the late 20th century. After the history, transition and growth of interpreting in the ’80s, it was realised more interpreters were needed and a strategy to grow interpreting numbers was to train people. This meant that courses needed to be developed. The history of this new emerging profession is not documented and seriously needs to be.

    This weekend and the survey that ASLITA has developed is aimed at gathering this important historical information so it can be documented and a resource produced that can be utilised in future training courses. If you interpreted during the 80’s and continued or started in the ’90’s or the 2000’s, your information is needed! The survey can be done before or after the May 2024 weekend. Coming to the weekend and hearing the presentations and about the events that took place may well remind you of more of your history.  There will also be a dinner on Saturday night and plenty of opportunities to reconnect with friends and colleagues.  The face-to-face event will be filmed, and a highlights’ video will be available online for purchase at a later date.

    Stay tuned for who the guest speakers will be on this weekend.

    Date: 18 – 19 May 2024

    Time: 18th Saturday May 2024 8:30am – 4.45pm. Optional dinner 6pm (at own expense) // Sunday 19th May 8:30am – 1:00pm

    Cost: $75.00 – Includes 1.5 day registration / light lunch / morning and afternoon teas.
    Location: Deaf Connect Meeting Rooms, 69 Phillip St, Parramatta NSW 2150
