Child Interests

We noticed delays in Dylan hitting milestones when he was a baby. Dylan had difficulties in feeding and weening due to low muscle tone. He sat up after he turned one and started walking as he turned 3. His speech continues to develop with a combination of verbal and signs to communicate. Dylan loves to communicate but gets very frustrated when he's not understood.
Dylan is a very smiley handsome young man who received his diagnosis August 2018 through the Deciphering Developmental Delays study. Following his diagnosis we realised he had vision difficulties so that his brain does not always interpret correctly what his eyes see. Having this secondary diagnosis allows us greater understanding of Dylan and how best to support him. Dylan has challenging behaviour primarily because he cannot communicate with the world as the rest of us do. However, he is determined, charming and full of giggles.
