You may meet the disability requirements if:
• you have an impairment or condition that is likely to be permanent and
• your impairment substantially reduces your ability to participate effectively in activities, or perform tasks or actions unless you have:
*assistance from other people or
*you have assistive technology or equipment (other than common items such as glasses) or
*you can’t participate effectively even with assistance or aides and equipment and
• your impairment affects your capacity for social and economic participation and
• You are likely to require support under the NDIS for your lifetime.
An impairment that varies in intensity e.g. because the impairment is of a chronic episodic nature may still be permanent, and you may require support under the NDIS for your lifetime, despite the variation.
