  • Via the Department of Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI)
  • Via the Lifetime Support Authority
  • Via your private health insurance

How is Assistive Technology funded?

Funding may be needed for a clinician to work with you to make an assessment and recommendation of the best Assistive Technology options for you. It may also be needed for a clinician to support you to learn to use your new technology once you receive it. Funding will also be needed to purchase the item or items that you need.
