Please read the entire description carefully. Leon will be 9 in November 2022. He has been issued a certificate of disability caused by a developmental disorder from the autism spectrum, namely - Asperger's Syndrome. In practice, it means that Leon has certain problems with communication, social relations, emotions, and aggression. The boy's parents, Agnes and Marcin, try to reduce their son's issues through therapy and pharmacology. The boy has been taking a medication that has significantly reduced his level of aggression and willingness to engage in self-harm. The boy's selective mutism is currently the greatest challenge. It results in the lack of voice messages from Leon about his well-being, for example - about whether he is hungry or how he feels, whether something hurts or saddens him. The boy can talk, but he hardly communicates with anyone, except for his younger sister, Pola, and his beloved dog, Ariana, a pet belonging to the Bernese Mountain Dog breed.

Leon has a lot of social inhibitions. He is afraid and ashamed even of people he knows well. He also suffers from a lot of phobias and fears. One never knows what day he will have and what he and his family will face. The boy's parents take care of his development as well as they can, arranging regular rehabilitation sessions under the supervision of therapists. Rehabilitation stays are connected with the most remarkable improvement, but regularity is needed to strengthen and maintain the effects achieved. They are the only thing that gives Leon a chance for a proper development and achieving independence. Leon's parents are determined to reach their goals and in a situation where the access to therapy and rehabilitation is difficult, they try to exercise with their son at home and take advantage of online therapy. We want to help Leon attend the current number of stays during the year, with the hope of increasing their numbers to a remarkable extent.
Needs we collect funds for:
- Providing support with regard to paying for Leon's rehabilitation stays, which the boy attends three times a year. Each stay lasts approximately two weeks.
