Child Interests

Charlie has limited interests but loves his music, singing and dancing. He loves motivational quotes and in his words "being awesome". He loves running around outdoors or going to his karate lessons. He loves being a super hero big brother and spending time with his family. His favourite colours are black and white.


Charlie started developing multiple birthmarks within months after birth (cafe au laits). It was shortly after that when his roller-coaster of a journey began.

He received a diagnosis of Neurofibromatosis Type 1 also known as NF. This condition causes tumours to grow along the nerves in addition to various other symptoms. Due to the unpredictable nature of the condition and it being progressive he was required to have ongoing tests and reviews. He struggled to meet his milestones and began presenting various signs of complex learning difficulties. He later went on to receive a diagnosis of autism and dyspraxia. It is now known that there is a strong correlation between these and his NF.

However, despite his daily challenges and difficulties he is a happy boy. He has various needs and struggles to make friends but he always tries his best and never gives up. He is an awesome little boy.
