Daisy loves nature, wild flowers, squirrels. Her favourite bird is a robin, with blue tits coming in a close second. She also loves butterflies and bees.
She is happiest outside, either in the garden or feeding the ducks and moorhens at the secluded lake near us. She also has two bunnies, something she wanted to have as pets for years.
She’s not overly keen on red, apart from on a robin, and her favourite colours are shades of green.
Daisy had febrile convulsions from a very early age. They were every two weeks by the time she was 3, and 2 in particular were long-lasting with no response from her for over 30 minutes.
She was also intermittently attending nursery and having difficulty with the social, intellectual and emotional aspects.
Daisy was diagnosed with autism, anxiety and SPD at the age of 4.5 and was still having regular febrile convulsions. She was not happy at all in a mainstream environment despite a 1:2 TA and we received a statement of SEN at the second attempt. Following this she transferred to a special needs school which has proved to be the best decision we could have made.
After her mum having got through numerous foot operations and sepsis last November she has developed severe separation anxiety.
