Theme details

Gruffalo/Disney Animals - The Gruffalo on the label or one of the squares if possible, I know there aren't many legal patterns available

Child Interests

Ryder loves The Gruffalo and the fox from The Gruffalo, he watches it 3 or 4 times a day. We are also big Disney fans in our house and can often be found humming or singing along to a Disney playlist.

Ryder has never picked a favourite colour, but he has a lot of greens and blues in his room which would work nicely.


Ryder was born 13 days overdue with no health issues. At his 6 month check-up I mentioned to health visitors that he still was not holding his head up. He was diagnosed with global development delay on his 1st birthday.

Ryder is now 3 and a half years old, and has just started to sit up independently for a few minutes at a time. Ryder cannot crawl, stand or walk and is non-verbal, although he is very good at getting his point across.

Ryder has had many tests to try to give us a clearer diagnosis, but they have all come back normal.

Ryder is currently waiting for results from genetics to come back. We have been part of the SWAN UK family as, although he has GDD as his diagnosis, it doesn't tell us why. SWAN is syndrome without a name and it's for the children and adults who have rare or unknown conditions.
