Aussie mum wins WiFi battle with school

EMR Australia - Wednesday, November 11, 2015

An Australian mother has succeeded in preventing the installation of WiFi in the school attended by her child, who had developed reactions to EMR, especially WiFi and Bluetooth.

When her child’s school considered the installation of WiFi, she submitted a comment to the Department of Education’s website reporting her child’s sensitivity, requesting assistance to find a high school without WiFi exposure and raising issues of disability and discrimination.

The school and district education officers then engaged in discussions with the mother.

She referred to a number of publications on issues of disability and accessibility in education and human rights. These included:

  • the United Nations ‘Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
  • the Disability Discrimination Act
  • and Disability Standards for Education.

She also referred to the MacDonald vs Comcare legal case and failure of Lloyds of London to insure against EMR-related injuries.

Following these discussions, the school introduced a policy to accommodate the child’s sensitivity, including using ipads in airplane mode and downloading from the internet after school hours. (
