Theme details

Going for a walk - A favourite family outing is walking. Theme should be Trees/Weather/Plants/Scenery.

This may include:

Weather- snow, rain, wind, night sky, rainbows
Plants- conkers, wildflowers, mushrooms, hedgerows
Scenery- woods, rivers, seaside, streams

It is also OK to include woodland animals/birds perhaps as part of a woodland scene rather than focusing on single animals/birds

Patterns should be age-appropriate for a 16 year old boy

Child Interests

He loves being outside in his swing being pushed and long walks especially in the woods or by the sea. He also loves music, vibrations and lights. He likes fabrics and rubbing his face in his duvet. He enjoys being on his feet dancing from side to side looking up the stairs or at his chair but can only do this with an adult present due to his seizures.
He likes going on steam trains, fairground rides, swimming and being on the wheelchair bike. He also likes books.

Jonathan likes blue and fabrics that aren’t too busy.


Jonathan was a happy baby meeting his early milestones. Jonathan started having seizures just before Easter 2007. These became progressively more frequent and we spent lots of time in hospital. As a result of the seizures that developed into infantile spasms he regressed and was no longer able to hold his head or open his hands. Jonathan is non-verbal but makes lots of sounds.

We spent a lot of time doing therapy and Jonathan has exceeded all expectations and can now walk short distances. He has continued to have seizures daily and occasionally needs rescue medication. He has had a vns fitted and we tried the ketogenic diet.

Jonathan attends a special needs school. He is a very happy child.
