Finn is a marvellous little man who is extremely intelligent and fabulously creative. Unfortunately Finn has recently been diagnosed with ADHD and his (equally marvellous, intelligent, fabulously creative and single) mum Ronel is trying her best to support Finn through thouroughly researched therapy (rather than controversial medication). She is doing a lot of the work with him by herself but Finn will also be going to a Neurotherapist once every week for the next 40 weeks. This will cost ZAR 500 per session - none of which will be covered by Finn's medical aid.
I know if one of my children suffered with ADHD I would have wanted to explore this route fully before medicating my child. As my mum is a teacher needing to deal with many children with this increasingly more prevalent problem I also understand both the frustration and demands teachers face in the classroom and passionately wish for better, more integrated and where at all possible more natural treatments and solutions for children, parents and teachers.
Ronel and Finn is the kind of team that can make a difference for other people.
This fundraising project will go towards paying for Finn's treatment.
