Trying to raise money for an Autism Assistance dog for my gorgeous son. He is five, non verbal, has major sensory problems, OCD, is unaware of danger & is diagnosed with Autism. He is very much in his own world, has big anxiety meltdowns from noises, household appilances cause him great distress, certain lights & vibrations cause him major anxiety. Its so hard for him to lead a normal life, i cant take him anywhere apart from very familiar places, he will freeze & cant get out of the car. Our lives are ruled by his Autism i wish i could take the anxiety away... He doesnt play in the conventional way , his great love is to walk in the park, he loves to be outside in the open away from the noises & artificial lights & sounds. We spend hours walking. He also seems to have a love for dogs, he laughs & smiles at them. My son is hugely affectionate, he cuddles & kisses & cant sleep on his own. I really think an Assistance dog could help my baby, it would help keep him out of danger, on our walks it can help me keep him aware of roads & traffic & it would be a constant companion for my little boy who cant express himself or talk to other children. Ive tried charities who state they can help with Assistance dogs for kids, but ive had no luck, they are not taking any other applications or im living out of their boundaries. Ive found a company called Autism Life dogs who can help my son get a dog but the cost of the Assistance dog is £8,500, i will never have that kind of money.
