Theme details

Police and Emergency Services - Police is a favourite, but anything emergency services related

Child Interests

Police and other emergency services eg ambulances, fire engines.

He mainly loves police officers of all kinds, police dogs, and police vehicles of all kinds.

Police and emergency services colours would be great eg police car blues and yellows, or ambulance / fire engine colours.

He really likes soft and furry fabrics but any fabric would be lovely.


Humphrey was found to be critically ill before he was born and underwent surgery while still in utero. He was born premature and spent the first 5 months of his life on the neonatal unit, where he went through many medical crises and difficult experiences.

His first few years were rocky - Humphrey had 5 operations before age 5, including open heart surgery. He had very delayed motor skills and had to be tube fed. He had lots of therapy to help him to learn to eat, which he first did at age 20 months, and walk, which he did at 2 and a half. He still struggles now with motor skills.

Humphrey is now nearly 11 years old, although he is young for his age, partly because he is body doesn't grow normally due to his Noonan syndrome, so he is the same height as his 7 year old sister, and has difficulty with strength and stamina. He has daily injections of growth hormone to help him grow and gain strength.

Being autistic, with ADHD also, he sees the world and lives his life in his own original way. He is sensitive to various things such as loud sudden noises like timers going off or people clapping and can find situations like busy noisy places very overwhelming - he needs a lot of reassurance and support.

Humphrey is an imaginative and playful boy with boundless enthusiasm about his particular interests - currently police and emergency services. He very much hopes to join the police when he grows up and to work with his own police dog.
