Riley is the cheekiest little 5 year old going and has the most amazing personality to match....

When Riley was 2 and a half he suffered an emotional trauma which stunted his emotional growth.

This basically means that whenever he feels pushed out of his comfort zone he will revert back to acting like a 2 and a half year old, throwing things and having tantrums.

This makes our home life quite difficult and Riley has an elder sister and a younger brother. It has also made his school life quite tricky. Because of his behaviour it often causes problems in school and he has now been taken out of the main stream classroom so he can get the one on one help he needs.

This problem can more than likely be corrected with the correct help. This help is in the form of play therapy and of course this comes at a cost.

We have been advised that Riley will  need a minimum of 20 sessions and that depending on how well he responds could possibly need a lot more.

The NHS will only give him 6 sessions of therapy, the school dont have any funds available to help, even social services say there piggy banks are empty!

I suggested that i pay weekly which would be a massive struggle for me financially but they will not allow the therapy to start until i have funded the 20 sessions (just under £1000)

So i have come to a point where i need to do something and that is where i am hoping everyone else will come in and help me to make my little boy better...

One last thing... anything over the money we need for Riley is going to be donated to a local charity called CIDAS, whom if they hadnt of had their funding cut would of been able to offer Riley the help he needed.....

Thank you so much to everyone who donates/shares..... we will always be grateful :)
