Smart Pup for Broden (202406)

Broden is a 6 yr boy diagnosed with Autism – level 3, ADHD. He also has a chromosome deletion and an intellectual disability. His diagnosis affects his everyday life from self care, learning independence, communication, noises and sounds and being around others. We are raising funds for a smart pup assistance dog to support him and help him through life with comfort, support, learning independence and with just having a best friend.

Broden was our first baby born via IVF, he took 6 long years to get here with us. We knew something wasn’t quite right very early on. He was a very hard baby for us. He got diagnosed quite early on at 18 months old. At 6 yrs old Broden attends a special school. He is the sweetest most loving boy, he just faces many challenges. Broden is non verbal, doesn’t quite understand instructions yet. He likes routine and understands those. He has trouble with sounds so he wears headphones to help him. He doesn’t have any friends and tends to hang by himself, even with his 5 yr old sister, he prefers being isolated. We have troubles taking him to shopping centres or peoples houses due to his anxiety and adhd. As a family it’s quite hard as we would love to all go together but have to seperate so it doesn’t overwhelm him. Broden is also a runner and being non verbal it’s my biggest fear of losing him. Brodens loves are his mummy (still sleeps in the bed) his iPad is his comfort, he likes Thomas Minis and Paw Patrol and being outside climbing on the monkey bars. We would love to be able to get him a smart pup to be his best friend and help him with his anxiety, communication, learning independence and to help track him if there’s ever a need for that.
