Caydin was 1 year and 6 months when I noticed some delays in his milestones. After Caydin was seen by 3 paediatric doctors, he was then diagnosed with Autism/Global Developmental Delay and was put on the list to receive his therapy appointments. Caydin is receiving Speech and Occupational Therapy at Victoria Hospital as well as ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat), Audiology and Developmental Clinic at Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.
After Caydin was diagnosed I resigned from my fulltime job and got a part time job so that I could be available for all his appointments and educate him while creating a supporting motivational environment at home. With the help of his therapy sessions and what I taught him at home Caydin has shown improvements in all aspects. I have found a crèche close to my job, called Chameleon and they work with special needs kids and offer all kinds of therapy opportunities to make sure every child strives in an educational environment.
As you may know, providing for a special needs child will always be costly when wanting to apply your child in a very well-known and productive educational centre that I only heard and seen great things. I realized that I cannot provide the necessary monthly fees as well as the extra fees for the therapy services Chameleon offers and so with that I am pleading for you to be generous enough to donate towards Caydin’s educational future at Chameleon.
Caydin is a hardworking, determined bright young boy that is hungry to learn, discover and grow.
