I’m very excited to announce that I will be running my first online class on Monday 18th October.

This class is to raise money so that our family can continue with Rainer’s medical intervention and behavioural therapy. Currently, our Early Intervention funding through the Federal Government expires on 18th October. While this has been extremely beneficial, we would like the opportunity to continue along the path this funding has placed us on.

When Rainer was finally diagnosed in 2006, we made a decision as a family that I would “retire” from Secondary Teaching and become his full-time carer. It was more important to devote my time, energy and mental health to my own children, rather than others’. We dropped a wage, and our costs tripled as we searched for answers for a very misunderstood and poorly resourced condition.

I went through 4 General Practitioners, 2 Kinesiologists, 2 Speech Therapists, 2 Occupational Therapists, 1 Psychologist and 1 Dietician before things began to finally take shape with Rainer’s recovery. There have been many mistakes made and promises broken in these 4 years, but I have no doubt there’ll be many more!

Rainer has additional medical issues which exacerbate his condition. Most prominent are his Sensory Issues and gut health. These have a great effect on his behaviour which makes his attendance at school difficult. Hence, we have home-based behavioural therapy 4 afternoons per week following his morning sessions at our local regular school.

So, I am very excited to be able to put together what I think is a fab-o class for you!!!! Hopefully, the first of many.
ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the funds will go towards Rainer’s therapy and intervention. I think you all know me by now to guess I won’t go out and buy the new Monaro LOL

And we have some fab-o sponsors for this class
Firstly, my dear friend, mentor and just down-right hilariously creative girl…Ngaire Bartlam

Has donated a super cute canvas which I have been ogling for a wee while now.

Another beautiful soul, Krissy Christie of Wicked Princesses
is donating a special little pack of goodies.

Lisa Warren of Storyboard Kits and my fellow Scrapbook Creations Diva

And my dear old friend Melissa Arnold; Creative Memories Unit Leader extraordinnaire, has offered a great new embellie pack for one participant.
