ILC National Readiness Grant

Solve Disability Solutions has been awarded an ILC National Readiness Grant by the National Disability Insurance Agency to manage a one-year project in collaboration with a consortium of TAD’s around Australia to develop a national, multi-regional information channel to support people with disability to make informed decisions about customised assistive technology (assistive technology that is not commercially available) and to combat confusion around the appropriateness of assistive technology to NDIS plans.

TAD Australia is a collaboration of seven state-based TAD organisations, who make and modify assistive technology that is not commercially available. Funding will be directed towards establishing consistent best practice protocols throughout all TADs and development of a central website/database, face to face connections and a phone-based information service. This project complements other assistive technology websites by providing information about non-commercial or user customised technology.
