Child Interests

Bobby loves football. Glasgow Celtic, Tottenham Hotspur and PSG are his favourites.
He loves computer games.
Drawing is a favourite hobby when anxiety hits.
His favourite colour is blue.


Bobby was born by c-section. He was a great baby, very happy and settled. He slept really well and was very social. He was late walking and talking. He started nursery at 2 1/2yrs old, settled well and mixed well with children. After some SLT input his speech came on great.

At 5 he started school but struggled at first as he worried about everything. After a few months he settled. Going into primary 2 Bobby became less social, he stuck very closely to immediate family. Night terrors started quite often and he gave up after school clubs as it was becoming too distressing. Going into school became extremely distressing for him and me and we had to start going in later. The doctor decided to refer to CAMHS as he noticed signs of anxiety for which, after some input, CAMHS decided to assess for autism.

Bobby's very vocal and intellectual. He likes to fit in with others and has now started attending football club. He lives and breathes all facts about his favourites. Bobby's anxiety forms around others being unwell and he takes on their symptoms.

He has an older brother who’s 12 and severely autistic. Bobby worries a lot about who will look after his brother when older. He struggles with the vocal noise level from his brother too. Myself and the boys dad separated when Bobby was about 8 months old. He has a half sister who also has autism so Bobby finds this really hard to accept. His anxiety has really changed his life as it’s taken a very happy social child and made him very withdrawn. We’ve worked hard to get Bobby to the stage he's at now and little bits of his happiness are returning and he’s becoming more involved. Large crowds and unknown places are hard for Bobby to cope with but with lots of preparation we are getting there.
