Equipment & Aids - FAQs
How can I get Assistive Technology funding in my NDIS Plan?
The NDIS has a support category named "Assistive Technology" so you can get funding for the equipment you need. Make sure you include a goal in your NDIS Plan that explains the daily tasks which would be made easier or possible with this technology.
You can speak to your NDIS planner for support in establishing your Assistive Technology goals.
Is Assistive Technology just iPads and communication devices?
No, it's any device or equipment that would make an activity easier for a person. For example, wheelchairs, adaptive cutlery, and shower chairs are all Assistive Technology.
How can I access equipment through CPL?
When you make an appointment to see a CPL Allied Health therapist, like an Occupational Therapist or a Speech Pathologist, they will assess your needs and work with you to find the equipment that suits you best.
