Coordinating NDIS Assistive Technology

This 4-part webinar series for Support Coordinators, Allied Health Practitioners and AT providers shows how to cut through the detail to get great outcomes.

The process for getting assistive technology funded in plans is full of hidden frustrating challenges. This 4-part webinar series for Support Coordinators, Allied Health Practitioners and AT providers shows how to cut through the detail to get great outcomes.

Each webinar works through a specific category of assistive technology, unpacking the need-to-know detail using real life situations, including:  

  • Navigating NDIS AT policies and processes 

  • Understanding the roles of the different supporting professionals 

  • Identifying who needs to be involved, including allied health practitioners, the NDIAs Technical Advisory team (TAT) and guardians 

  • Successfully tackling key challenges and hurdles 

  • Maximising outcomes for participants

As always, there will be time for questions as well as follow up answers for any questions we don’t get to on the day.
