Hi there. My name is Megan Büttgen, I am 20 years old.
In 2018 I matriculated with six distinctions and was accepted into medical school. Half way through my first year I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome (high functioning autism) and had to take a year off of my studies to do the testing and a lot of therapy. I am going back to continue my studies in July this year.
Recently, as recommended by my psychologist, I’ve been in the process of applying for a service dog to assist me with my condition during my studies. The training is extremely expensive (R52 000 in total over the next 18 months) but I know that this will be worth it because this is something that I’ve done a lot of research on and there are numerous studies that have proved the success and positive impact these dogs have on people with my condition.
We have sourced a dog that will be ready to start the training in 2 months time by Honey’s Medical Alert Dogs.
