Child’s Name: Dylan
Child’s Condition: West Syndrome
Attended Heel & Toe Since: 2017
Dylan was born at full term, no complications and weighing a healthy 10lb 8. After developing meningitis at 4 and a half months old parents noticed problems with Dylan from around 5 months of age, with a diagnosis of West Syndrome being given at 7.5 months of age.
Dylan is currently unable to speak but gets his needs met through pointing, verbal noises, and some basic sign language. He is very clumsy on his feet and cannot yet jump or kick a ball.
Mam tells us he is a very sociable little boy but you know when he has had enough as the hair pulling and biting starts.
