When Andrew was referred to us, he was two years behind at school. He was in Year 4 at school in a small country town, and had spent most of the year not participating, not engaging with his teacher or classmates, with his head on the desk, and quickly getting further and further behind.

A year later, he is now a completely different boy.

When Andrew first visited our Manly site he attended number of appointments and assessments with our team of paediatric healthcare specialists including doctors, nurses, psychologists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists. Through these assessments, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) was confirmed and plan was put together which included strategies for home and school, as well as medication to improve his ability to concentrate.

Right now it is estimated up to 300,000 kids across rural and remote Australia are without access to the specialist healthcare they need

The progress that Andrew has made in one short year is simply incredible, and really shows just how important early intervention is, because without treatment, vulnerable children may grow up to become vulnerable adults. It is a travesty that country kids, with largely manageable disorders, may not reach their full potential in life
