NDIS Planning Tips

What Assistive Technology might I need to achieve my goals?

When writing your goals, consider what AT you might need to help you achieve them. Your goals need to include the activities you will be able to access with the Assistive Technology you are asking for.

If you are requesting a bike, include the activities you will be able to access if you have a bike. This may be riding with friends and family in the park. It may be participating in school or community sports events.

A goal that just says that you want to “ride a bike” is not enough. The NDIS may not fund your bike because you don’t mention increased participation in the community or in social activities.

An example of a well written goal might be:

My goal is to develop greater social networks and have greater inclusion in the community, through participating in activities such as cycling with friends and family. To achieve this goal I need a Freedom Wheels bike.


My needs can be different, depending how I feel on the day. How do I cover these differences?

It is helpful to think about your worst day. What might you need to make life easier on that day?

For example, you may have more trouble walking when you are in pain. Make sure you include these in your list and discuss them with your planner.
