Great news, NDIS extends offer!
Due to popular demand, this NDIS offering has been extended 3 times now and most recently to 'indefinitely' which is great news for our NDIS participants.
IMPORTANT: Only one Apple iPad / laptop per NDIS participant*
Because of physical / social distancing, the NDIS has explored innovative ways providers including Allied Health professionals are continuing to deliver services to participants – some of these are online.
As such, the NDIS is allowing for NDIS Participant the ability to acquire an Apple iPad for specific purposes.
If you're a Local Area Coordinator (LAC), Occupational Therapist (OT), Plan Manager, NDIS Participant or a Family / Friend of an NDIS Participant then please contact us right away to see how we can assist you today.
We will assist you to navigate your way through the NDIS to acquire an Apple iPad
I'm An NDIS Participant And Require An Apple iPad.
Regardless of whether you are Self, Plan or Agency Managed, Hear for Less has sourced and provided hundreds of Tablets or iPads to those who require them for either Tele-Audiology or Telehealth purposes.
N.B: Please note that you can only choose one device per NDIS participant number
Should I Get A Tablet Or An iPad?
The best way to answer this question is to ask you this question. What smartphone device do you already have?
If you currently have an Android device such as a Samsung, Sony. OPPO etc then a Tablet is the best way forwards, however, if you have an Apple iPhone then an iPad would be best suited.
Which Models Are Available To Me?
The Apple iPad market is fast moving and there are many different models out there. Because of this we have decided not to list the models here, however, due to the relationships we have built with the main distribution companies around Australia, this means that we have access to weekly deals on the latest Apple iPads. This means that we will get you the best deal available with a fast turnaround time.
N.B: Please note that Australia has serious stock issues with Apple iPads at the moment. If you're wanting brand new then there could be a month long wait. This is a restriction to Hear for Less, but all of our distribution companies nationwide and we have stock on backorder.
How Do I Know If I Am Eligible?
Apple iPads are not for everybody, so first you must be an NDIS Participant.
Next, you will need to work with your Support Coordinator, who will assist you to create a plan through the NDIS subject to your individual circumstances.
What Category Do Apple iPads Fall Under In The NDIS?
Apple iPads fall under the category of Assistive Technology.
Assistive Technology (AT) provides the support a person with a disability might use to reach their potential at home, in the community and the workplace within reason.
The process you will follow to access AT in your NDIS plan will depend on:
Your specific AT needs
How complex your AT needs are
How you manage your AT budget.
Are There Limitations?
Yes, the NDIS has set about certain restrictions in order for NDIS Participants to achieve their basic goals. i.e Apple iPads are not meant to be purchased for the likes of gaming, watching movies and so on.
In the case of Apple iPads for telehealth and care or participating in online video classes, advice from AT specialists is that most NDIS participants will not need more than a standard tablet, which costs no more than $600. This budget can be stretched up to $750, however, must include a details letter from a health professional as the increased requirement.
The NDIS is ever-evolving and may update their list of limitations at any stage. For the most up-to-date information you can find out more by clicking here.
*And finally, you must make a choice whether you wish to obtain a tablet, iPad or laptop as you cannot order more than one.
Can I Spend More For What I Want?
Yes, any additional accessories or increased prices must be covered for by the NDIS Participants. Any money's over and above are 'self-funded' and payable directly to Hear for Less
