"WHY I DO WHAT I DO" By Jenny

“Created from fear, powered by passion, driven with hope.”

 

Created from fear:

 

My son struggled speaking, avoided social integration and eye contact, was far too loud, had severe sensory issues, eating problems, anxiety, concentration and sleep issues along with routine based obsessions.

 

I often found him sitting rocking backwards and forwards in the corner of the room with his hands over his ears or head down walking backwards and forwards humming loudly, whilst flapping his hands or hitting his stomach repeatedly. He massively struggled with change, he often used to stimm, scream and hit out.

 

I was scared, lonely and so confused.

 

The day I was told he had autism filled me massively with fear and the following questions:

 

Would my son be able to live a happy, independent, fun filled life? Or would he end up socially isolated, bullied, never work, never have a partner or be able to live independently?

 

These questions haunted me. I dropped everything I was doing and decided that I needed to get to know and support my son the best I could, I swiftly ran away from my life, and went travelling with my little boy.

 

Fuelled by Passion:

 

I was adamant back then and continue to be adamant now that I will find the solutions needed to suppress my own fears and therefore the fears of others.

 

I have travelled a long way in the years since - dedicating my life to this very cause.

 

I am so proud to say that my son has overcome all of his earlier difficulties, together we worked tirelessly to find, adapt and use various coping strategies.

 

Driven by hope:

 

Our hopes and values are what drive us to better not only ourselves but those who we are privileged to influence and support.

 

I always held (and still) hold on strongly to hope, that my son will go on to lead an independent, fulfilling life, but I also wish that for every person I meet.

 

I believe no one should have to suffer in the eyes of difference - due to lack of support, education or forethought.

 

After years of research, testing and developing new strategies along with a great team around me, I am so proud to share with you all, the following Doncaster based service; which has been created from fear, is fuelled with passion and is continually driven with hope. Our aim is simply to create a more independent & inclusive society
