  2. Good Morning! I have a question which has been asked 100 times on here but as ever my case is slightly different from all the rest! I am currently in the very early stages of getting a PR visa via sponsorship. Unfortunately I have just become aware of the issues which can arise from having leaning disabilities and having your visa granted. My son is just under 2.5 years old and has speech delay he was referred to a Speech therapist who decided he should attend a learn and grown group rather than having therapy at this stage. In general he does the majority of what a child should at his age it is really just his speech. So the big question is...are we likely to get our visa? Has anyone else had the same circumstance? as most I see on here are from people who's children have been diagnosed with Autism etc and are a little older. One other thing which I thought of was whether it is possible to agree to pay for any costs my child will incur due to his speech delay once in Australia such as paying for any therapy or extra schooling he may need? Is this even possible? Many thanks for anybody's input I have also emailed George Lombard but there is nothing like peoples personal experiences!
  3. Okay so today was not a good day. We are on a permanent resident status and today I learnt that as we didn't take up any private health insurance within a year of receiving our medicare card we are now liable for another 30% on private health insurance costs (ie a loading) - ten year loading if we take out private health insurance. Is this common knowledge - and how come we missed this? But we are being advised to take our private health insurance as my husband will get heavily penalised in his end of year tax return if he doesn't (apparently although not sure why) This is our dilemma - 7 year old son has been referred by a GP to see a speech therapist. Apparently under an EPC agreement , my son can see a Speech Therapist for five sessions immediately but there will be a shortfall or gap which we will have to fund ourselves. Rang the Speech Therapist today and it appears the shortfall for five sessions is $340 which is more than I expected. So then I think....hhmmm I should just sign up for private health insurance and get son seen that way. If I took out private health insurance tomorrow could he be seen fairly soon? Would I have to pay anything (other than private health insurance costs) and would i be capped on a limit to his speech therapy, ie amount of seesions or costs incurred...or maybe even if I did take out private health insurance I would have to wait until I could access speech therapy services.... If anyone can shed any light that would be fab. this private health care cover thing is driving me nuts!!!!:arghh: Sulac
