Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund an ABA programme for Jenson.
- Harrogate, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Jenson is nearly 3 years old and was diagnosed with Fragile X Syndrome in 2017 and then autism earlier this year. He has a number of learning difficulties and at present is non-verbal. I have found an educational programme called ABA, delivered through Child Autism UK, which is specifically designed to teach autistic children to reach their full potential. I hope with this programme Jenson will be able to find a method to communicate with his family and friends, gain confidence and go on to attend mainstream school with an ABA tutor, who will help him with the day to day tasks that he may otherwise struggle with. ABA will only be funded by the NHS once parents have privately paid for ABA and gathered one year's worth of evidence. As it is so expensive, I will be holding a number of events to help fund it.
You can buy 1 strip for £5 or 3 strips for £10, can be paid via this webpage or directly to Becky. The winners will be announced on 14th July. Prizes so far include...
1. Bettys - Afternoon Tea for Two
2. Swinton Park - Afternoon Tea for Two
