Biography

James was born 5 weeks premature and weighed 41b 3 oz. He was a very quiet baby and from 2 years old was a little dynamo.

His hyperactivity and sensory issues impacted on his behaviour and sleep. He struggled at school and nursery to follow the rules and make friends. He reacted so badly to the lack of support in a mainstream school which resulted in him having to attend a residential school which was 50 miles away. He is very anxious and missed his mum so much he lost a section of his hair and spent every night crying himself to sleep. The battle for diagnosis was long but eventually successful. James is now 12 years old and in a local special school and is really starting to show signs of settling down and making some friends. He still struggles with sleep and emotional regulation and anxiety.
