Hi my name is Corey and I’m 12. I have a diagnosis of ASD, ADHD and Dyspraxia. My mum is helping me to write this. I’ve only had my diagnosis in the last 2 years but I’ve always felt different from other children. Having autism makes me sad and sometimes people don’t understand me.
I go to a special school in Lancaster, I don’t really like it and don’t think I should be in a special school but teachers and other people say I do. I struggle to make friends which makes me sad. I want friends to play out with and play Xbox one with. I hope I make friends soon.
I love going to the beach with my mum and sister and my favourite place is primrose valley near Scarborough. It makes me happy when we go , I wish we could live there. We go crabbing and we have lots of fun.
I love Man City and like to go to the matches with my mum , I hope we can do that again soon. I love my mum she is my best friend and I love my dog Magnus and my family.
REACH North West hire venues and provide access to environments they otherwise may not be able to access such as horse riding, swimming and Santa visits. These activities allow children to socialise with peers in a safe and often differentiated environment.Social Activities
