Shelbi Nduta Wang'ang'a was born on 4th September 2011. She is now 4 years old. After turning 2 years her family noticed she had delayed development and was withdrawn.

 After many visits to various doctors and numerous tests done no clear diagnosis was given. A friend recommended the family to try 'Feed the Children Center' at Dagoretti where they offer free assessment and therapy. It is here they assessed and diagnosed her with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

There is no cure for (ASD), but doctors, therapists and special education teachers can help ASD children to learn and communicate better. The earlier the child starts getting help the better. It is for this reason Shelbi's family is sharing this with you so as to help us help her better manage her (ASD).

The family has started the process of registering her with the National Council for Disabled and will explore funds available at the County and Ward levels. She has also been introduced to a battery of vitamin and mineral supplements as well as a change in diet to avoid sugar and gluten. Already dramatic changes for the better have been noted and it is encouraging.

The end Goal is to make an early intervention now and eventually get Shelbi ready to attend regular school from class one. To this end six schooling facilities that can take her have been looked into thoroughly and Eva Naputuni Consultancy and her Acorn Special Tutorials has been settled on. Eva Naputuni, who has been a long time Consultant on Children disorders runs the facility. The facility is easily accessible by Shelbi and her family and most importantly, it will offer a weekly boarding option that will afford the father time during the week to engage in income generating activities or find regular employment so that he can tackle the rest of the long journey ahead.

Shelbi has reacted well to being in that space and we trust your support will help impact her life for the better.
