Technology – Part 2
The NDIA has passed down the decision, they will not fund computers.
I think this is probably, due to the carte blanche attitude of ‘anybody with an ISP’ (Individual Support Package) and the inability to police/monitor recipients of funding packages to buy a new computer, iPad, X-Box, gadgets, whatever, every year regardless of, if they need them.
Obviously, they don’t hut they have not ever managed this as a funding oversight or overspending.
I don’t know how I’m going to afford a new computer just because the government thinks
“EVERY HOUSEHOLD IN AUSTRALIA HAS A COMPUTER”
I have carers who don’t own a computer or even have one in their homes. My father never had a computer and he’s 68 years old, by the way and would not cope nor even be interested in a computer.
So, ergo, case in point, I don’t know how the government want us to manage our NDIS funding or anything else we are supposed to do on a computer, if we can’t afford one. I guess (to quote a friend) they think I’ll be able to smash away on my pillow as if it’s a keyboard.
Great image BTW (By the way)
