Robin was diagnosed just days before his second birthday. As a baby, he was very quiet, didn’t want cuddles or physical contact.
It became clear around 11 months old that Robin wasn’t your typical child and never made a sound except screaming. He wasn’t reaching his goals or meeting any milestones. Robin is now 6, non verbal and severe autism, he has little understanding and becomes frustrated so quickly, unable to cope with new situations. Robin loves his routine and is settled in a specialist school. More recently Robin also has a diagnosis of epilepsy and experiences absence seizures.
