SCHOOL TERM PROGRAM

Play Tech Australia’s school term program provides Autistic and Neurodiverse children the opportunity to develop their social skills in a supportive – and fun! – environment while engaging with technology.

Deliberately designed to be participant led, our industry trained facilitators and mentors follow the lead of children and enable them to pursue projects that interest them.

We love nothing more than seeing children come out of their shell and increase their social interaction throughout our school term program. We currently hold age specific sessions across North Lakes, Murrumba Downs (The Shed) and Chermside – find out more below!

All sessions can be NDIS funded with no out of pocket.  Claimable from CB9 ’increased social’, CB15 ’daily activities’ or CORE.  Our program helps meet the children’s NDIS goals to increased communication, social interaction, community participation, relationship building, independence and self-care capacity building goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who runs the sessions? What qualifications do they hold?

All of our facilitators and mentors are industry professionals and hold blue cards. They have all completed NDIS Worker Orientation training, too! And love to share their knowledge and show interest in what the kids are into.

 

  • Can I use NDIS funding for the sessions?

Yes, absolutely! Many parents use their NDIS plans to cover the cost of sessions as it aligns to their children’s goals.

 

  • Do parents need to stay for the duration of the session?

No, parents do not need to stay for the 2-hour sessions. In fact, we encourage that you don’t.
