Online: Assistive technology changes for plan managers

The NDIA invites plan managers to an information session to enhance their understanding of the changes to the NDIS assistive technology (AT) process.

The NDIA has improved the way we fund assistive technology:

  • Quotes are no longer needed for AT items under $15,000, making it easier and faster for participants to get the AT supports they need.
  • Some evidence is still required to make sure participants get the right AT.
  • Only AT items valued over $15,000 will need a quote.

Read about these changes in the updated assistive technology guideline .

The NDIA has also released a vehicle modifications and driving supports guideline  and template, to make information simpler and clearer.

These improvements are part of the NDIA commitment to have less red tape when accessing AT supports.

Providers can also find guidance materials under Providing assistive technology.

Sessions will be delivered via video-conference using Microsoft Teams. You will be sent login details (including the MS Teams link) via email from [email protected].

If you have accessibility requirements please advise when registering. Please note, a minimum of five business days' notice is required to book Auslan interpreters and live captioning services.

For any enquiries, please contact [email protected] and include the session name in the subject line.
