- Aids and equipment in the workplace
- Adapting equipment to make it easier to use
- Money toward any additional travel costs to and from work if the young person cannot use available public transport, or they need help to adapt a vehicle
- An interpreter or other communication support at a job interview or other practical help at work, such as a job coach or a sign language interpreter
