yay for the government

The new Labour government promised when they got into power that they would find funding for autism. Today, they have come through on their promise for me.

I found out today that they will pay $6,000 each year for the next two years until Bright Eyes is 7 in fees to our RDI consultant for ongoing therapy. This will cover our therapy costs.

I am really pleased about this. I had just let our consultant know that we were going to have to give up her regular help and just toddle along on our own because we had run out of money to pay for RDI after doing it for two years.

Now we can continue on, thanks to Kevin Rudd and the pollies who are taking autism seriously!
