Yes, weighted blankets are covered by NDIS under Assistive Technology. They are graded at level 3/4 and may not always be approved though. You may want to speak with your occupational therapist about this further. You may need an assessment from your Occupational Therapist in order to gain approval from NDIA to purchase weighted blankets with your NDIS funds.
