AT Access Barriers

By sliding AT for the under 21 group, under EPSDT, the criteria is a barrier to access to this group in getting AT items to increase ability to control environment, support ISP outcomes as identified, and live safely and independently in the least restrictive community setting.

Due to fact that EPSDT criteria is more restrictive than the AT criteria that those 21 and over have.

EPSDT criteria must be for the treatment of the individual's disability or to improve a physical or mental condition;

Example: Assistive devices; GPS tracking for wandering and elopement.
