"Under the self exclusion heading the 7th dot point refers to not providing inducements to people with signs of problem gambling. This would be better to be that inducements are not provided to people displaying signs they are being harmed by gambling."

"I agree with the above comments , the cert iv should include some details about how supervisors would also mange NDIS issues to support the individual , the whole units must reflect the new industry of NDIS , as more support workers are moving into this area. Support in community is not great and support workers need more training on how to mange the issues with the individual also. Terminology is poor and not reflective of today's world. "
