JOB DESCRIPTION

SOMETHING ABOUT ME                         

I am a 7-year-old boy living with my mum, dad and my sister in the Taff Wells area. I have had a diagnosis of Congenital Aniridia a genetic condition, which means I have no Iris and I am registered severely sight impaired.  I am sensitive to sunlight and I wear glasses or sunglasses when I am outside.

We are an active family and I love playing outside and getting stuck in with outdoor games and activities. As a family we have a positive attitude to what I can achieve, and we feel it’s important for me to be as independent as possible.

My parents describe me as a chatty, sociable and loving boy, I am also very inquisitive, and I enjoy play centres and creative play. I currently do not use visual aids so I require verbal prompting and describing of my surroundings when I am in the community and unfamiliar areas.
