    @donald. Thank you for your feedback. What you are saying is true. In the country of the Philippines, we need many advocates to help our special children in need. Politicians and lobby groups must come together to help promote these kind of therapies as I believe it is a major factor in treating our special child. It is unfortunate that in the country of Australia, it is not as readily available as we would like it to be or affordable as such.
    @susy. Unfortunately, I dont have a schedule at the moment here in Australia but will let you know in the near future. Pls. leave a message if you require further information about biomedical treatments. Thanks
