What is Assistive Technology in the NDIS?

"Assistive Technology, also known as AT, is the equipment a person might use to help them with everyday 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 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." (Transcript for 'Assistive technology')
