Rehabilitation treatment for Nikita Shishkov

METACO Charity Foundation received a request for help from a mother of a developmentally challenged child, Nikita Shishkov.

Six-year-old Nikita has been living with a diagnosis of autism for the last four years of his life. This serious disorder in a child’s development cannot be cured, but rehabilitation can aid significantly in a child’s integration into society.

Nikita has been undergoing regular courses of rehabilitation, training and treatment and visits a nursery tailored to his particular requirements, which goes a long way to contributing to the improvement of his condition. He is a very bright boy and, so far, he understands speech, distinguishes between colours and completes puzzles, but unfortunately, despite the therapy, his speech has not been developing.

At the request of the child’s mother, Metaco Foundation has paid for a rehabilitation course in the Chinese hospital, “Love Angel” in Beijing and the round-trip flights, Moscow-Beijing-Moscow.

Chinese experts are waiting to see Nikita and his mother on February 18, 2016. We are hoping that the treatment in China will foster positive results and make it possible for the boy to say his first words.
