About This Project

acidlabs was engaged by DSS to provide service design, design strategy, accessibility analysis, and user experience services as a part of the development of the National Disability Insurance Agency Participant Portal, providing services to recipients of services under the NDIS.

Working with stakeholders and business owners, we first translated real-world requirements into designs for products, services, policy and technology, while also working with a range of technical specialists including business analysts, policy writers, development teams, and senior management across several agencies served by DSS.

As advocates for users, we also conducted interview and focus group testing with a range of NDIS participants including carers and people with disabilities. This research fed into the development of prototypes that were then tested with the same group and that served as direct guidance for development of the Participant Portal itself.
