All NDIS supports must meet the NDIS funding criteria.
When we think about assistive technology support, we’ll ask these questions:
- Does the assistive technology relate to your disability?
- Is the assistive technology right for you?
- Is the assistive technology you need value for money?
- Is your assistive technology funded or provided by someone else?
We consider how your supports work together as a package to address your disability support needs or achieve an outcome.
We look at how assistive technology will make it easier for you to do things or reduce other supports you need.
Your assistive technology should bring you benefits over many years.
Learn more about the principles we follow to create your plan.
Your assistive technology must relate to your disability.
It should help you with different activities, or something you can’t do now.
Or, assistive technology may make it less tiring for you to do some things, or mean you need less help from someone else.
We won’t fund a support if it’s not related to your disability.
We don’t fund general items that everyone needs, like everyday household furniture.
But we might fund the extra cost of adapting general items for your disability.
