JOB DESCRIPTION

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a twenty-nine year old female living with my dad and our dog in the area of Penarth. My dad describes me as having a wicked sense of humour. I like to keep my mind active, I am very mobile and very vocal, and sometimes I use Makaton. Makaton uses speech with signs (gestures) and symbols (pictures) to help people communicate. I can be very head strong and understand everything. When I was very young, I did not get any formal diagnosis- SWAN stands for ‘syndromes without a name’. It’s a term used when a child or young adult is believed to have a genetic condition and testing has failed to identify its genetic cause. Syndromes without a name are also referred to as undiagnosed genetic conditions, unknown genetic conditions or undiagnosed genetic disorders.
