Story

Rilee was "DIAGNOSED WITH AUTISM" at 3 years of age.
Autism unpredictably causes Rilee to become extremely anxious, frustrated and scared. Due to these unmanageable feelings, his main response is self-harming.
Rilee is a very loving, caring and compassionate little boy who just wants to play, especially with his baby brother, Charly.
It's an absolute understatement to say how totally devastating and truly heartbreaking it is to see our child constantly causing physical harm to himself, then crying out in immense pain and becoming very sad because of it. It's like mental torture.

ABOUT AUTISM:
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others.
Autistic people see, hear and feel the world differently to other people.
If you are autistic, you are autistic for life; autism cannot be 'cured'.
Some autistic people say the world feels overwhelming and this can cause them considerable anxiety.
In particular, understanding and relating to other people, and taking part in everyday aspects of life, can be a lot harder for them.
Children with Autism suffer from a range of cognitive, learning, emotional and behavioural problems. They may also have anxiety, or depression.

Rilee experiences over- and under-sensitivity to sounds, touch, tastes, smells, light, colours, temperatures and pain. For example, he finds certain background sounds, which other people ignore or block out, unbearably loud and distracting. This can cause anxiety and even physical pain.

There is no 'cure' for autism. However, there's a range of strategies and approaches to use to help make life a little easier - building Rilee a Safespace to give him time out from all of this struggling is definitely one for him.

During an episode, Rilee poses a high risk of injuring himself. He needs a "Safespace" where he can go when he's feeling anxious or stressed. But mainly somewhere that we can place him when he is starting to self-harm where there's nothing dangerous around him for him to do this
