Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Stefan Dragović (2015).
After complications during the birth, Stefan was out of oxygen and got an intestinal infection. He spent his first days in University Children’s Hospital Tiršova for medical examination. Due to the suspicion of dilated bowel loops and general weakness, Stefan ended up in an incubator.
Then followed relatively orderly development with a delay in speech, but with the presence of social interaction, until the 18th month when Stefan loses social interaction. Since then, all elements of autism have appeared. There was significant progress after speech therapy, special education treatments and intensive work at home.
Soon after, it was determined that Stefan has a severe form of developmental immaturity, which led to misunderstanding of speech, hypotonia and delay at all levels. Stefan was diagnosed with Spina bifida occulta, which made motor development difficult. When he was four years old, there was a sudden deterioration. Seizures recur every 15 days. Stefan ended up in the hospital where the seizures continued even eight times a day. With adequate therapy, Stefan's condition improved and he returned to his home.
Stefan needs financial help to continue with special education and speech therapy treatments, reduction treatments, psychomotor skills, hippotherapy and he also needs medicines and supplements.
The costs of treatment exceeds income of his single mother.
