I travelled to a small Cerebral Palsy clinic in Varsity Lakes, Queensland to discuss disability reforms with veteran speech pathologist Rebecca Daniloff.

The facility – which specialises in treatment for children – currently has a waiting list of almost 30.

Ms Daniloff said the current system was inadequate and many children as young as four had no viable treatment options in there area.

The centre’s specialists often work over-time with no pay just to help with disabled children.

She says the reform will privatise the industry and encourage “big money” to set up similar clinics in regional areas.

I had a crack at performing a live interview with her.
