Equipment repair or replacement
Reimbursement of the cost of repairing or replacing devices (desktop or laptop computer, augmentative communication device) can be awarded only if the devices were acquired under the Allowance for Special Needs Program and you attend a school where the “material resources” program component is covered.
To be approved, the estimate must be less than 60% of the value of the device at the time of purchase. If it is more costly to repair the device, you can request it be replaced. The same applies if the repairs cost more than the current replacement cost or if the device cannot be repaired.
Important: The cost of repairing or replacing the device is only reimbursed once in the student’s lifetime.
