At the end of 2017, one of our Support Coordinators met a new client whose physical disability limited her ability to access the community. Felicity loves singing with her friends and participating in a choir, but her disability had prevented her from going to most performances or watch others perform.
The Support Coordinator was able to liaise with an Occupational Therapist to come in to assess her support needs and prescribed a motorised scooter for her use. The Support Coordinator then submitted the Assistive Technology Report and motorised scooter quote to the NDIS for their approval.
They even were able to arrange a motorised scooter to be rented in the meantime. A few months later the motorised scooter was approved by the NDIA and she is now using it daily and has already taken it onto a cruise tour.
