Theme details

Male Disney Characters - Nemo and Dory (we'll make an exception for her!) are favourites

Child Interests

Ellis loves Disney particularly Dory, Nemo and Bing Bunny from CBeebies.
Favourite colours are blue and grey.


Ellis was delayed in most milestones and we had to fight for a doctor to take us seriously. He didn’t walk until 2 and he is completely non-verbal. He didn’t roll over and didn’t crawl very much and cried in pain with his muscles in his legs most of the time. Eventually a blood test flagged-up straight away that there was something wrong.
We found out that he had a genetic condition Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and he also is non-verbal with global development delay and social communication difficulties. He has been through so many tests and has physio every week.
Ellis is about to go on a steroid which has big side effects, we are hoping this will help him cope with his condition.
