Changes to the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health Equipment / Assistive Technology Joint Funding Form and Information Sheet

Requests for joint funding by the Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ministry of Health (MoH) for high cost equipment / assistive technology can be made when the equipment will support the person in their daily living as well as have specific features that support learning at school.

The Joint Funding Form and Information Sheet (created in November 2011) has been reviewed and updated to reflect current practice and make it more user friendly for everybody.

The Information Sheet now includes a diagram of the Joint Funding Process which includes the changes in the Equipment and Modification Services (EMS) process since the introduction of the Prioritisation Tool by the Ministry of Health.

The Joint Funding Form has been updated in order to provide structure for EMS and MoE assessors and ensure essential information is provided for the funding agencies.  The form has been simplified to include essential information only. It continues to reflect the SETT (student, environment, tasks and tools) assessment process. Physical signatures are no longer required to avoid formatting issues.

The new Joint Funding Form and Information Sheet are attached to this notice for your reference and will be up on both websites in the New Year.
