Formatted Abstract/Summary
Government policy influences the individual and societal outcomes potentiated by assistive technology (AT) and related supports. Political theory suggests that concurrent problem recognition, potential policy solutions, and active political will, are necessary triggers for concerted government action. This has occurred in Australia, with the advent of a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), which will revolutionize disability services and, it is hoped, deliver equity for Australians living with impairment. Analysis of the stakeholders and processes involved in developing an NDIS provides a useful case study for others seeking policy change.
