Who is this guide for? 

This guide is for families and carers of children with developmental delay or physical or intellectual disability. It will teach you about assistive technology (AT) that may support your child’s independence at home and in the community. 

Why is supporting children at home and in the community important? 

Supports are available to help children have independence at home for everyday tasks. For example, getting dressed, washing, going to the toilet, eating and drinking, and moving around.

AT can also support your child’s participation in their recreation activities in the community. Engagement is important for your child’s physical and mental wellbeing and helps them to participate and enjoy their life.
