NDIS assistive technology?

According to WHO, Assistive Technology [AT] is a device or a system that allows an individual to perform a task that they could not have done otherwise or provide ease and safety to do any task.

또한 NDIS [National Disability Insurance Scheme] funds this technology that allows individuals with disabilities to perform tasks to reach their potential at home, in public, at a workplace or anywhere. One thing to keep in mind is that NDIS does not cover and fund items that come under other government services.

There are various requirements set by NDIS for funding AT. Let us discuss them in the following section.

NDIS requirements for releasing funds

Following are the primary requirements set by NDIS for funding AT:

  • The technology, device or system needs to be related to the disability of the individual.
  • It must be worth the money spent.
  • It must help disabled individuals with their goals and ambitions.
  • It must be operative and advantageous for the individual.
  • It must help the individual with their participation in society or at the workplace.
  • It must help the individual maintain their informal support.

경우 low-cost assistive technology NDIS you are interested in follows all these requirements, then you can get it funded with NDIS.

다양한 수준의 assistive technology NDIS

AT can be divided into four different levels depending on the complexity of the device or the technology. The four levels are:

  • Basic assistive tech
  • Standard assistive tech

These types are more commonly known as levels 1 – 4, respectively. Let us discuss each of these in detail below:
