This paper addresses the emergence of Australian government policy relating to intellectual disability and the resulting impact upon those who live with its consequence. Governments at all levels are recognising the need to legislate re: the needs and right of people with disabilities but people in the field have problems with interpreting legislation and then putting it into practice. The Disability Services Act, the Disability Reform Package, employment and various policy issues are discussed. Keyword: Government
