What is Assistive Technology in the NDIS?
Assistive Technology and the NDIS
Assistive Technology, as known as AT, is the equipment a person might use to help them with everday tasks that they wouldn’t be able to do on their own, or makes it easier and safer to do.
For a person living with a disability, this might be equipment or systems which help with moving around the home or community, communicating with other people, processing information and other daily tasks.
Every person living with a disability has different needs. AT may be included in your NDIS plan if it is identified as a reasonable and necessary support that meets your needs, and supports you to achieve better outcomes in life.
