Supporting my boys! 🤩
I have two beautiful boys Elijah 14, Nate 5. Both boys have diagnosis of Autism along with other disabilities. It has been a very long hard road providing early intervention and ongoing support for my boys, a lot of sacrifices have been made along with a lot of tears, tantrums, heartache, depression and anxiety and that is not just from my boys but from me and my loved ones supporting them and myself also. The diagnosis journey is not easy nor is dealing with the behaviours and difference in behaviours with both boys, (no two are the same). Elijah has just started with Aspect hunter school this year and I wish I had of known about it earlier as it is a great cause, for 7 years my son suffered in main stream education, to be bullied not only by other students but teachers, he was offered no support and left to fend for himself in what was a very overwhelming environment that caused lots of anxiety and meltdowns. It got to the point that I nearly lost my son to suicide and self harm tendencies because he could not cope, that meltdowns every afternoon were heartbreaking and no family or child should have to go through that. So after of year of homeschooling Elijah is now in Aspect hunter school and receiving the wonderful support from the staff and has a opportunity for a bright future. So we are very excited to raise money and support such a great organisation.. Elijah's little brother has started in the mainstream setting which he is being monitored carefully. Nate has a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, epilepsy, ASD and ADD. Both boys have beautiful souls and I would not change them for the world, as challenging as it is at times they are my heart and soul.
I'm walking for Aspect Hunter School
I’ve stepped up to Walk for autism to help create a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind.
I’ll be challenging myself to raise much needed funds to support people on the autism spectrum.
An estimated 1 in every 70 people is on the autism spectrum. Along with their family members, this means autism is a part of daily life for over a million Australians.
People on the autism spectrum see, hear, feel and experience the world differently. For many, simply coping with the everyday can lead to confusion, anxiety and isolation.
By coming together and taking action, we can help provide opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to participate, engage and thrive in the world around them.
