Child Interests

Leoni is horse mad. She enjoys looking at pictures of horses and goes riding at a specialist disability riding school which is part of her therapy. She has recently gotten two dwarf rabbits to care for herself, and she named them Pepsi and Sherbet.

Leoni is a football fan and supports Newcastle United, and loves to play too. Her favourite colours are pink, blue and of course black and white.


Biography

Leoni spent her first Xmas in hospital at 3 days old with feeding issues and skin infection. After treatment she thrived into a curious toddler. At this time she started with absence seizures where she would stare blankly and have no response to her environment, followed by lip smacking and extreme tiredness. Her behaviour become more extreme and different by 18 months and she was not able to play with toys, but had to have them stacked around her and you couldn’t disturb them or she would have a meltdown.

An autism diagnosis was made at 3. She was non verbal and has sensory issues and a sleep disorder. By 7 she was diagnosed with ADHD and she put her energy to good use enjoying physical activity from horse riding to football, climbing trees and always on the go.

At 10 she left primary school and started secondary school, where she was bullied to the point school could not keep her safe. I took her out of school for a year until she could be found a place where she could be safe and most of all happy.

Her epilepsy had became uncontrollable and she became a shell of the girl she was. She has PTSD and severe anxiety and hurts herself. She has a lot of input from paediatric doctors and psychologists and strategies to help her cope. Now we are in a place where we are trying building up her self esteem, her self worth and getting her to enjoy and engage with thing she loves. She loves animals and horses especially and following her football team and she can name every player! Her memory is amazing. She loves her cuddles and likes to snuggle on a giant beanbag with a blanket for security.
