Theme details

Specific - His understanding of the world is narrow, so some specifics:

Gruffalo and any characters from the Gruffalo books (legal patterns please - there are some charts in our Files) Also Zog - we have permission to chart

Swings and blowing bubbles. Chocolate cake with lots of candles. Perhaps an modern-style aeroplane and a swimming pool

Some squares with numbers on them and small designs, for example, this sort of thing: here .

Child Interests

Jack absolutely loves the Hungry Caterpillar book and has memorised it word for word, he loves to read it to his school friends after lunch.

He is also a big fan of Zog (from the Julia Donaldson books).
His favourite colour is (in Jack's words) 'all the colours'. He also loves to count numbers all day every day.

Jack also loves to go on holiday to play in the swimming pools, he gets very excited when we get to go on a aeroplane.


Jack experienced his 1st seizure at only 6 months old. After a year of some terrifying seizures and having to be put into an induced coma for 2 days after experiencing a 3hr long seizure he was finally tested for Dravet Syndrome. This was a devastating diagnosis for our family. Jack has continued to have 1000s of seizures through his life and countless hospital visits. He also suffers with a severe language disorder and autism.

Unfortunately there is no cure for Jack but he never lets it get him down. He is the happiest most loving little boy and we love him dearly.
