Response to One Student: Alise Khan
In response to the student’s posts, I find Alise Kha more open minded in analyzing the situation. Her approach in considering the whole script to reveal the emotional and financial trauma that the families experience is logical. The family as a basic unit of our normal lives contains all the members related to it. Therefore, the student’s perspective is the best in explaining the script. Moreover, the analysis the student provides with respect to the overall decision and basing her support on the family’s experience is agreeable. Furthermore, the perspective the student displays is logical as she acknowledges the difference between in being in the same position and merely imagining. Finally, she demonstrates a common stand on the significance of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
