We were glad to be with a family who needed financial help to support the long-term treatment that would give a chance to a normal life to their boy, born in 2014 and diagnosed with bilateral periventricular leucomalacia.
The boy has undergone numerous therapies: at the age of 2 months, he started vojta therapy, from the age of seven, the parents combined vojta, bobath, and water therapy. In December 2015, the boy entered the NACD program and continued with this program, craniosacral therapy, and water therapy.
The therapy involves a sustained financial effort from the part of the family. The evaluation fee in the NACD program was $ 950 and every month the parents pay $ 260 to stay in this program that gives the little boy daily online support and a custom kineto program on his needs.
Now, at 1 year and 9 months, the little boy crawls very well and began to stand up on his feet, but not in a proper position to allow him to move forward.
For proper treatment and results, the boy needs Feldenkrais therapy with a foreign therapist and is done in 5 or 10 session shifts every 3 months. The cost of such a meeting is 70 euros, plus the road and accommodation of therapists who are brought to the country (about 1,000 euros for 10 sessions).
Parents tried to provide him, as far as possible, with all the medical care the boy needs, but the costs of therapies are high and outweigh the material possibilities of the family.
“We are pleased with his evolution so far, from a child who smiled and started watching us very late, which did not pass the hearing tests for months, became a child creeping up to the toys he likes and tells us a few words (water, bath, pope) and, above all, smiles from morning till night. We know that may be more, we know that if we work a lot, we have all the chances of a life considered normal by society and we will do our best to be so. “These are the words of the boy’s mother.
