Proudest achievement of my “special child”
I suffer with epilepsy but my child had never seen me having a Grand Mal seizure until the morning of Friday 11th May. That morning, my older son was not at home and my husband had left for work. My child was alone with me for almost 2 hours; he did everything in his power before he phoned three people using contact names on my mobile phone, all without panicking. He phoned his granny and assured her “Don’t worry. Come slowly. I’m looking after Mum.”
In between that time, he had managed to get himself ready for school, put his uniform on, got his bag ready, open the front door, console his brother who is 20 years old who was panicking and crying, saying “Don’t worry, she will be OK,” and waiting for his aunt who informed his passenger assistant our child "is my Hero.”
I would like to say a special thank you to Oaklands School and all his teachers who have made my child with Special Educational Needs into a child who remains calm. You have shown him that he is just as capable as any other person and that he also has strengths.
