Congratulations to our June Grant Recipient Leonard!
Leonard is 10, has Autism, suffers from depression, anxiety and has limited social skills, which has lead to school avoidance & risk of self harm. So his mother Cassandra has had to leave her job temporarily to care for him & home school.
The financial and emotional impact on this family has been immense.
Leonard has only been approved for 5 psychologist hours per year in his NDIS plan, which is completely inadequate for his needs and required support.
Leonard requires weekly psychological therapy supports, he has a mental health care plan but that doesn’t cover the out of pocket cost , so when Leonard’s mother contacted The Frankie Foundation we just had to help.
