I was searching for a particular article in the archives of a Sydney newspaper today and I stumbled across this instead.
You can also read another article about this situation here.
They are both articles about an Australian footballer who has a 3 yr old son recently diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
And this little boy gets 4 hours A DAY of therapy. Most of our children don’t even get 4 hours a week!
Wouldn’t it be nice if all parents of children with an ASD could access that level of therapy. All of our children deserve that but sadly- it just isn’t affordable for all.
But I am still stoked for their little boy that he is getting the help that he needs.
And I don’t begrudge this couple at all. They are amazing. They are aware that they are more financially fortunate than most people and have set up this great charity site 4 asd kids.
Maybe I should get my hubby to take up footy and try to get famous?
Just a thought……:D
