Biography

Alistair was born 2 days early, it was a ventouse delivery. He was a very colicky baby, didn’t sleep much but still full of energy. He was walking by 10 months. He used to get upset being around people he didn’t know and large noisy areas and didn’t bother with other children.

At 2yrs old he started nursery and within weeks they asked if health visitors could assess him. He was then sent for assessment and I was told at the first appointment he had autism but wouldn’t be diagnosed for at least a year. After about 8 months he was moved to a new nursery with a smaller class with more staff. He loved it. Alistar is non-verbal. At this point his diet became more restricted.

Alistair started school and within weeks we knew it wasn’t the right setting. After a full year there he moved to a new school and settled so quickly. He loved being there, he flourished. This year he started high school and has settled amazingly taking it all in his stride. He’s learning to write his name and his understanding of language is fantastic.

At nearly 13yrs old Alistair is still non-verbal. He’s a very placid and loving boy. He’s had to deal with so many changes in life which isn’t easy for someone with autism. Myself and his dad separated when he was 5. He’s moved nursery and schools and we’ve had to move house and he adjusts to all of this so quickly and without much distress.
