Good day everyone! I am Ayan, Kade Jared's mom. As difficult as it is to relive the biggest challenge we are now facing as a family, let me share our story. 4 years ago, I received the most beautiful gift. I had my boy, Kade Jared. He's a handsome, active boy. He's very sweet and soft-hearted. October last year, his Pediatrician advised us to have him checked to a Developmental Pediatrician because of Speech Delay. So we did. That was the day when he was diagnosed with ASD or Autism Spectrum Disorder. We're indenial at first. I cried myself to sleep asking myself what I did wrong in raising him. We're so devastated.
The Developmental Pediatrician advised us to get a slot for Occupational Therapy. We did do so, because that's the only thing we could as his parents. To make sure that he's been getting the help he needs. If the situation is difficult and painful for us, how about for him?
As of this moment, we're having a hard time funding for his therapies. Every session costs PHP650 for an hour and Kade Jared needs to have sessions twice a week. I am a full-time housewife, my common-law husband is the only one who's working and earning. As much as I want to apply for a job and earn money myself, I cannot leave my son alone. He needs me. I need to focus on him.
Our household income isn't enough to sustain his OT sessions. So I am doing this to ask for help so we could fund his therapy sessions. Any amount will be of great help. Thank you so much!
