Seth has Ataxic Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder.

His mother put him in a mainstream primary school, then challenged him to take Malay as a second language. She even tried to get him enlisted in National Service.

She did all these so that her son could experience all that life had to offer him.

Ms Silvia Buniardi has detailed the complex challenges of raising a child with special needs in her book, Extraordinary You. To find out more about the book, readers can email Ms Buniardi at [email protected]
