help an autistic boy fix his bathroom

Hi everyone,My name is Aaron and I am a 14-year-old boy who is diagnosed with Autism. I am none verbal with behavioral challenges which makes it hard for me to communicate my needs, however over the last year I have come so far making my staff and family very proud. Despite my diagnosis I am a happy, extremely loveable and kind boy with an amazing laugh and smile.Every Saturday I have 2 staff take me out for a drive which gives me a chance to go to beaches, parks and recently was able to go to inflatable world.I love sensory activities especially anything that relates to water, spending most of my time in my blow-up pool or rocking up and down in the bath laughing and splashing staff, having more than 10 baths a day to meet my sensory needs. however due to my love of water it’s caused the bath and bathroom to root and fall apart as the water splashes over the edge. I have an amazing single mother and little sister who have gone above and beyond to keep me safe however my mum had to stop working to look after me full time due to my behavioral issues. Due to mum leaving work she doesn’t have enough of an income to fix the bathroom, but she’s tried her hardest to fix the bath, but I’ve done too much damage.I would love to give back to my mum after everything she has done for me. Me and my staff are hoping to build a sensory bathroom for me as well and fix the existing bathroom for my mum and sister. However, I need your help in order to fundraise the money to fix the bathroom for my mum, sister and me. If there’s anything you can do to help me it would mean the world tomy family, my staff and me. Thank you for reading my storyLove Aaron(written on behalf of my disability support workers)
