Story

This is the story written for Ashwik's father Rajeev Kumar by his friend:


Ashwik belongs to Patna, Bihar and has been diagnosed with Autism (a neurological disorder) at AIIMS Delhi when he was 2.5 yrs old. As doctors told us there is no cure for Autism they suggested to start early intervention to make his life sustainable. Since then early intervention has been given to him i.e. speech therapy, occupational therapy at Patna. But after giving him around 2-3 years of therapy at Patna, unfortunately there were no significant improvement. Then his father decided to send him Delhi for therapy and special education. This was really not an easy decision for Ashwik's father as he does a private job in Patna itself and earns Rs. 37000/- per month only. He knew that this decision to sending his son Delhi is quite expensive say around Rs. 30,000/- per month extra expenditure. Imagine a father whose earning is Rs. 37000/- p.m. only decided to double his expenditure only for the sake of his son.  Finally, in June 2018 Ashwik went to Delhi and started taking therapy, got admission in a Special School and also took admission in Skating classes. From the financial support from family and friends Ashwik father sent his son to Delhi. Though its an ongoing process and every month atleast Rs. 30,000/- is required to meet the expenditure. The monthly fees on Ashwik's early invention are  -

Therapy - 11000 per month (which includes speech therapy and occupational therapy)

Special school fee - 2600 per month  (including transporation)

Room rent - 6500 per month (stays nearby the therapy center)

Skating classes - 700 per month

Food + misc expense - 5000

Ashwik father stays at Patna for earning money so that he can manage the treatment of his child while her mother stays alongwith him.

Ashwik is 7 years old now but cant speak. He even cant recognise his father. He even does not indicate the he needs water, he wants to go toilet etc.  He lives in his own world.

Atleast therapy fee plus school fee (Rs.11000 + Rs.2600 per month) for two years six month can help him to improve his life as his father is finding it difficult to afford the expenses and he is now in a dept trap.
