This form is for non sensory assistive technology only and therefore does not cover technology for vision support or hearing impairment.

For a child or young person's to qualify for an assessment, there must be a proposal for equipment/software which does not fall under Best Endeavours and Reasonable Adjustments Best Endeavours and Reasonable Adjustments (BERA) Framework.  Equipment that falls under BERA, such as laptops and iPads, must be purchased by the school.

If a child or young person qualifies for an assessment and the proposed equipment/software is approved, the school will be advised to invoice the finance team with the costs.
