Child Interests

Scott's main interest is steam trains, this started with Thomas the tank and has moved onto all steam trains like flying Scotsman and tornado. We are regular visitors to all steam galas and model railway exhibitions and he has an ever growing hornby collection and models of engines. Scott favourite colour is green but likes all colours.


Biography

Scott was born 5 weeks early weighing 2lb 12oz, small but otherwise healthy. He was such a contented baby, very rarely crying,he was slow to meet all his milestones but initially we put that down to being a prem baby. When he became a toddler we started to notice that he didn't like musical, flashing toys, preferring books, wooden toys. At playgroups he would be playing next to the other children but not with them. When he turned 3 and still didn't speak, we looked to the professionals to help guide us.

We tried nursery but he was continually distressed to the point, he would bite, kick and start self harming. We learned makaton to help understand and alleviate his frustration. We learned through letting him set routines and learning that he thrived on routine and order. We learned that he needed calm relaxed environments, he enjoys deep pressure, having piles of soft toys, blankets or beanbags on top of him. Scott is now 10 years old and never ceases to amaze me, his love of books and steam trains is all consuming but bring him such joy. He is in a fantastic school which is equipped to support him and the 5 other boys in his class and while he still needs to have a strict routine and constant adult support, he is generally very content and happy.
