Homemaker Nadrah Radzi has two children with special needs – her eldest son Mikail Sya’rawi, nine, is diagnosed with autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and her six-year-old daughter Haniin Uraifi has dyslexia.

Nadrah always has her hands full, seeing to her kids’ homeschooling activities, medical appointments, therapy sessions and dealing with Mikail’s meltdowns.
