All About Sacrifice!!

6/07/2015

Having a child with special needs is not that simple. It's really tough and in most cases, it's a 24/7 mommy duties because I have to keep an eye on him as he does a lot of disturbing things that requires full attention.

As a parent, not only do I have to be physical present but also emotionally stable for him. And it doesn't end there.

If you are planning to have your child assessed by a developmental pediatrician, you must be financially prepared. Doctor's fee ranges from Php 3,000 to Php 12,000. Private schools for special children cost about Php 3,000 per month  or Php 500 for every one hour session. 

I initially enrolled Zac at Starflight Development Center for Special Children in Guiguinto, Bulacan. Our monthly rate costs Php 2,700 (discounted price), which is equivalent to 8 sessions. At first, I thought I wouldn't be able to keep up with the monthly fee so I even requested for financial aid from a government institution. I was informed that an occupational therapy is just similar to a SPED center, and that there are existing public SPED center in Bulacan. And so I started hunting since then.

Then, I discovered a public SPED center at Marcelo H. Del Pilar Memorial School in San Nicolas, Bulakan and classes will start next week.

For enrollment requirements, I have to submit the following:

1. photocopy of my son's NSO Birth Certificate
2. photocopy of the doctor's assessment

I was advised to wait for the teacher's feedback via text. For now, I can only hope for the best.
