State Schools’ Relief, in partnership with Bank First and Gandel Philanthropy, are pleased to once again provide iPads for non-verbal Victorian children, allowing them to communicate with their families, teachers, carers and friends through the use of a learning device.
For the families who can afford them, iPads have enabled engagement with learning and meaningful communication for many young people; however, at a cost of more than $600 each, many parents and carers are not in a position to be able to provide this essential tool for their child.
To assist these young people increase their capabilities for improved participation in their education, State Schools’ Relief will provide an iPad to any non-verbal student requiring assistance. This opportunity will be available to any student eligible, based on the normal assessment of need conducted in your school.
This program will be rolled out in Term 3, 2020.
