HELP US HELP OUR AUTISTIC SON – GOAL R 150 000
We are the loving proud parents of René, a 10 year old Autistic boy with Asperger Syndrome. As our only child, we raised René with exceptional care, a loving home, respect and to the best we as parents be.
We never stopped and will never stop trying to give René a fair chance to education, life and full support towards his specific disability needs.
Due to Rene’s diagnosis almost 6 years ago, I was forced to resign from my work in order to assist him with his special needs, home based stimulation therapy, occupational therapy appointments, assessments, reading lessons and sport therapy. Due to Rene’s high sensory deficiency, which is common with his diagnosis and therefore a picky eater – specific food and milk supplements need to be added daily to his diet including regular blood tests and a hospital visit every 3-4 months for Iron & Protein intravenous drips.
As a result of the huge financial implications and only having 1 (one) monthly income – we had to sell our home and move to a smaller older house.
Sadly, owing to economic pressure, the cost of Rene’s medication, therapy, education fees and daily necessities continues to soar.
Since February 2017, with the help of his medical team, René were accepted at Heritage House Independent School. This Private school is the only school in Paarl, which fully caters for Rene’s specific needs with experienced teachers and behaviour specialists. Although Rene is registered as a person with disabilities – we do not qualify or receive any Educational Grants.
We as parents will hugely be appreciative of the compassionate assistance from individuals or companies, who can contribute financially towards Rene’s Education Fees.
Thanking you in advance.
