Richard’s daughter had been experiencing severe sensory problems and stress.
She was struggling to express her emotions and often had meltdowns which significantly impacted her education. This had emotionally affected all family members, who are struggling to understand her needs. Due to Covid-19, the waiting list for her to see an NHS paediatrician has increased, meaning she wouldn’t receive an autism assessment for months.
Richard reached out to the RBF to see if we could help. We were able to provide a grant towards the cost of a private need’s assessment, including sensory and autism, for Richard’s daughter.
