Child Interests

Dade loves transport. If it has wheels he will play with it cycling and being outdoors. He will happily play with diggers in th dirt for hours.
His favourite colours are blue,and purple.


Dade was born via an emergency c-section. He didn't breath for 7 minutes and began having seizures soon after birth. He has been medicated all his life and is now on 2 meds twice a day, but sadly his epilepsy is still uncontrolled. He was diagnosed with CP when he was 10 months old and soon after we found out that his hearing and sight were affected.
Dade has physio every day for up to 4 hours and we were taught how to do the exercises to strengthen his body until he learned to walk with a Kaye walker. He wears hearing aids and glasses and knows some Makaton which is how he communicates along with his communication folder.
He adores being outside and his favourite activities are cycling and playing with cars, trucks and diggers.
Dade's mental age is around 3yrs so he attends a SEN School where he has joined the secondary department.
He still has frequent seizures so he is scared to go to sleep, I spend a lot of time in his room of an evening reassuring him that he is okay and safe.
