Child Interests

R loves elephants. She learns as much as she can about them, and they have become an obsession. She loves the colour grey, but also light pinks and yellows. She really dislikes the colour red and is slightly phobic of it. She also loves cats, dogs and giraffes.


Biography

R was born two weeks before her due date after an uneventful pregnancy. She slept very little in comparison to her sister, and would sometimes struggle to feed. There was always something different between her and her peers. She struggled to interact and didn’t really understand their games. At the age of eight, after lengthy assessments, R was diagnosed with ASD. This was in some ways a relief to us, to have a name for why she was struggling so much.

R suffered from extreme anxiety and missed a lot of school due to this. She is now back in education full time, but has been bullied a lot by other students. She has recently begun to show signs of an eating disorder, which her doctors and her family are closely monitoring.

R is the most loving child and she has an extraordinary amount of love to give to the people around her. Thank you for making this quilt and showing her that people love her too. Thank you to all the work that you do. It means so much to parents like me.
