Daniel is 9 years old. He has a few things going on, as you can see from his diagnosis, that make everyday life for him difficult and a challenge at times (certainly for mum & dad anyway!!!). He loves his DS and Pokemon characters & games and playing outside. He was born full term but was always at least 6 months behind on reaching milestones, even as a 1 year old we could see the signs he did a lot of stimming, it wasn't until he was 3 years old and starting nursery that we started getting diagnoses. When Daniel is having an "episode"! he likes to be wrapped up and cuddled. He also likes the weight of a couple extra blankets on his bed at night.
