Abstract:
Responsibilities for AT provision in Italy reside mainly with the National Health System (NHS), but there are also regulations at regional level and other benefits and sector-specific provisions, thus leading to a complex legislation regulating this domain. This document is therefore intended to provide an overall reference frame, offering guidance on regulations in force and on opportunities to apply for funding. The different settings “home, everyday life”/”employment” and “education” are analysed separately, providing indications on the main pieces of legislation, as well as on the system of delivery, according to national regulations and regional policies.
