Theme details

Rainbows - Rainbows is her favourite. If the odd unicorn or butterfly gets in with the rainbow it's fine, but rainbow is the star of the show! :)

Child Interests

Favourite colour is purple. She likes rainbows. Her room is decorated with rainbows.


Allissa was born the day after her due date after a perfect pregnancy. Natural birth with little intervention, her apgar scores were low but she recovered and we were sent to the ward.

The next morning she had a seizure and was rushed to intensive care, where she remained for a fortnight until a second brain scan showed an area of damage. At the time we were told she would be likely to develop cp, although that couldn’t be diagnosed until age two. We were told to expect an unresponsive child who wouldn’t recognise us but who would appreciate good care.

She worked hard and has reached many miles stones in her own time. She is a wheelchair user and attends main stream school. She is very popular with staff and children and is full of fun and personality. Allissa likes to be in charge and will always make her self heard.

Her diagnosis of epilepsy a few years ago crushed us all but now her seizures tend to be well controlled by medication and we avoid triggers as much as we can.

As with all additional needs children Allissa has been through many uncomfortable procedures including scans, therapy, Botox injections, mri scans and EEGs to name but a few. She is so brave and strong we are always very proud of her. Allissa suffers with anxiety which can affect her behaviour but we try our best to help her with that.

She enjoys horse riding, race running, swimming, puzzles, uno and singing.

Allissa is an incredible, tenacious and bright girl who should never be underestimated.
