This registration group refers to supports for products used in sports and other recreational activities. The NDIS defines recreation as “any activity, pastime or hobby that is carried out for enjoyment or leisure.” Recreation is a great way for NDIS participants to build social skills and engage with their community. Other benefits include better physical and mental well being, improved self-esteem and confidence, and higher levels of independence.
The NDIS provides a variety of recreation-related supports, from helping participants change into sports clothes to assisting them with travel arrangements. Organisations may also qualify for NDIS support, for example if individuals have to be trained to accommodate the disability of a teammate who is an NDIS participant.
The focus of this particular registration group is on specialised recreational equipment, as well as modifications to recreational equipment. These can range from modified golf clubs to assistive music technology. As an example of the latter, there is a product called Skoog which is designed to provide music therapy to children with developmental disability, allowing them to play music with their hands, elbows, knees, and head.
