Workshop 4 at 7th iCREATe 2013: Possibilities for Choice: An Australian Web Based Model for Empowering Consumers in AT Selection
The Australian service delivery framework for people with disabilities is undergoing immense change. These changes centre on “person centred approaches” with consumers having direct control of their individual support systems. Many will choose to control the purchasing of these supports, including their assistive technologies. The ability to make informed choice is therefore central to decision making and access to impartial, independent information adds immense value to the success of this process for many. The Independent Living Centre NSW has developed an integrated web based model of service delivery “@magic” that assists in finding assistive technologies and that links to supply. This session gives and overview of the new Australian policy context and demonstrates the capacity of www.ilcnsw.asn.au to deliver information to those who need it.
