I am a full time mum and carer to my son Max who is 11 years old and has severe nonverbal autism. I also have a daughter called Poppy who is 9. I live in Astley with my children, my husband Stuart, and our dog Dolly. Max is currently in Year 6 and is due to transition to high school in September. I am compiling this video profile to assist the new staff in understanding Max, some of his behaviours, people who are important to him and things that he enjoys. As Max is nonverbal it is essential that any new staff are able to understand as much as possible about him, as he is not able to share things himself.
