SOMETHING ABOUT US

Young Boy

I am a young boy living with my mum and sister in Maerdy I have high functioning Autism. I don’t like raised voices and too many people, everything goes in my mouth, I have some communication problems but I am starting to learn to put sentences together.  I can have tantrums and can bite, scram and scream; when I am like this a PA needs to remain calm and patient with me.  I don’t have any sense of danger and can run off.
