Caring for special needs children requires patience, dedication, love and financial resources to ensure the continued well-being of special needs children. By laying the groundwork early and taking advantage of available resources, you can minimize the worry of caregiving and enjoy its rewards.
Bowsing through the 2018/19 Estimates of Expenditure there was still no provision for a special needs community specialist and funding for medical assessments which is critical for special needs children to qualify for social assistance, education and other benefits.
Caring for a special needs child can bring unique joys to your life—as well as a number of financial and emotional concerns. Unfortunately, there are no free support programs and free resources in place—that can make it easier for you to give your child a secure and fulfilling life, The financial demands of any specialized care may be immediate and intimidating.
It may be even more dunting if either parent need to leave the workforce to care for a loved one with special needs, the second half of last year and the first quarter of this year your generous donations allowed us to assist 13 children with special needs assessments, consumables such as disposible diapers, wipes, personal care and non persishable food items to assist families, we continue to hope for your generosity to continue assisting those we are already assisting and those who are in dire need of assistance. We cannot do it alone and are asking for your help and donations.
