This is the story of a single mother and a very beautiful and clever boy called Julian who has been diagnosed with High Functioning Autism.
School life for Jules has been hard.
Julian started out in a public school that neglected his additional needs resulting in him attenting a specialist school for 12 months to get him back on track.
Although i struggled to pay for this, i managed.
Then it was time for Julian to return to mainstream education. After speaking with 40 schools and visiting 20, i decided on a small parish school, 40 minutes drive from home. It has been the best choice i cpuld have made. Jules has gained his confidence and made some friends along the way.
The financial commitment has been tough, but i have managed by getting early release of what superanuation i has.
Next year, Julian if off to Secondary School!
So far i have had to borrow $3000 from friends just to cover the cost of his uniform, books and the required iPad.
Today ive decided to swallow whats left of my pride and ask for your help to raise the money needed to pay for his education fees and expences, and for any additional help he will be needing to get through his secondary school years safely.
