Azfar Hazim & Akmal Hakeem are the greatest gift in my entire life. I love them so dearly and equally. Somewhere in March 2013, I made a move to bring over azfar-chan to Hospital Tuanku Fauziah for a check-up; I requested for speech therapy sessions but as we all know, SOPs does not allow us to jump straight to it. So my husband & I had to bring azfar to the ENT clinic for initial check-up prior engaging to a hearing test.
Alhamdullilah the test was 100% ok, although the first audiologist was not so child-friendly she did requested azfar to undergo occupational therapy session (OT).
Cikgu Su they call her is a very great therapist. She may be just U29 grade but her skills in handling special needs children are so good. Azfar started the OT session in March and after 9 sessions we can see tremendous improvement in his behaviour.
I am not a bookworm type, but since I was told the word ADHD, my journey begins. My good friend bought me 3 book just to help me to begin azfar’s intervention. Thanks to my son, I am now able to read at least 5-6 pages of books daily.
When this journey begins(the kick-off was when I consulted Dr Chua May Wah from KMC) and thank to her, she wrote a referral letter. In this 3 months, I have been through the long process/procedures a parent must wait. It is very frustrating when you expect to consult/discuss with a specialist/pead and yet, you were given just a MO. I have no offence with MO but when she/he messes around with me or my son, then they should get it. Mess with the best, then you know the rest 🙂
I am praying to the Almighty Allah that, my husband and I are given courage and health to give the best for Azfar & Hakeem.
