Child Interests

Oliver loves fishing. This is his only really interest. He loves everything to do with it and will read books, visit aquariums, go fishing. He loves most colours but especially blues and greens. He also randomly collects different blankets. He finds the sensory feel of them comforting and relaxing.


Biography

Oliver struggled with his breathing since birth and has had multiple admissions, mostly to the high dependency unit.

Oliver's whole life has been affected by this which has only been made more complicated by his autism and his inability to understand what is happening or allow medical professionals close enough to treat him. This culminated in 2015 when he wouldn't allow doctors to treat him and they had to let him deteriorate to the point of not being able to fight. This resulted in Oliver being intubated, placed in an induced coma and transferred to London Intensive care. I was told he may never wake up. Luckily he is a fighter and recovered. However we now have to travel 120 miles round trip every week for treatment where he recieves 4 injections and has various lung function tests.

On top of all this Oliver struggles greatly with understanding emotion and finds it hard to make friends. He struggles at school and is under a psychiatrist for his psychotic episodes.
He really is a lovely boy, when you get to know him if he will allow you to. His absolute and only passion is fishing. He finds great calmness in fishing and learning about fish.
