The Specialised ATHM Assessment Pilot has now closed
Thank you, participants and their representatives, for volunteering to take part in the pilot and providing feedback on your experience.
Since its launch in April 2019, the Specialised ATHM Assessment Panel Pilot has been well received. Seventy seven per cent of those invited to participate preferred the piloted approach to identifying and assessing their Assistive Technology and Home Modification needs.
The pilot successfully reached the intended number of over 175 completed assessments conducted by an independent assessor. These assessments were completed for participants aged from 6 to 64 years across South West Sydney, Illawarra Shoalhaven, Southern NSW and the ACT.
We acknowledge the support of members of the disability sector, our Partners, EACH, Ferros Care, Uniting, Lifestart and St Vincent de Paul, and our Independent ATHM Assessor organisation, Konekt, for support that has proved instrumental to the success of the pilot. All contributions are helping us to deliver a consistent, reliable and fair Scheme for all NDIS participants, their families and carers.
