About Us

I am a 12 year old boy living at home with my Dad and our pet dog in the Builth Wells area.

I love to build things, play with my toy cars and enjoy watching friends on TV.

I have Autistic traits, can be very shy, or sometimes mischievous.  Once I get to know people I like to talk a lot.  It is important for me to know the plan of what is happening and what to do.

I am also epileptic and do have seizures, mostly in the morning and which I just need someone to ensure I am safe during my seizure, and give reassurance afterwards.

I attend Penmaes school.

We are looking for kind and patient people to provide some support in the mornings and early evenings before and after I get on the school bus.
