Keeley’s Cause operates under the direction and guidance of Founder Keeley Johnson. Our primary goal is to provide iPads to children from low-income families, specifically those whose parent(s) or caregiver(s) are in receipt of an Australian Government Pension.
Additionally, we strive to offer events, programs, and supplementary support to the recipient children and their families. Our focus remains on promoting ability and inclusion, ensuring that kindness and acceptance are integrated into all our efforts to support families impacted by Autism and Intellectual Disabilities. Our ultimate aim is to help these families thrive and achieve successful outcomes.
“My mission is to ensure that all children, irrespective of their disability, can access inclusive educations, providing them with the tools for a brighter future”
– Keeley Johnson, Founder
Our education system does not sit equally when it comes to assisting children who may require additional help. Public schools are more often than not faced with a [lack of] funding, and unfortunately, specialist schools and private options are not available to the community as a whole.
Studies have shown that introducing iPads into learning situations has a positive effect on children’s development, from fine motor skills to developing ways to communicate.
“If an iPad was available to all children who require additional support, would they have a better chance at learning and communicating?
The answer is absolutely.”
We aim to empower children with the skills and opportunities to leave school with the ability to enter the workforce, securing meaningful employment for their future.
Depending on your funding agreement, you may or may be able to purchase an iPad. During your application with us, we will request your NDIS number.
For some families, purchasing the latest iPad may not be within the family budget, and that’s where Keeley’s Cause can help.
Families who meet the criteria can apply for an iPad through Keeley’s Cause.
If your child is diagnosed with Autism or an Intellectual disability, you may have access to an iPad through their school. However, that’s where it stops. The iPad must remain at school and is often shared around the classroom with other students.
This means learning children don’t have the same opportunity to continue learning once they get home.
