Ellie May

Hello im Ellie-May Ridings mum Zoe i just wanted to share an all about me.

Hello My name is Ellie -may and I have autism & ADHD. I would like to tell you a bit about myself (my mum will help me)

I live at home with mummy, daddy and my little sister Lucy. I love to spend time at nana and grandads (2  five minutes) which is really hated due to the virus stopping me. This was hard when they lived nextdoor πŸ™„

I love routine it really confuses me when I don't know what's happening or what to expect.

(Self isolation and social distancing is hard) but I try 😁

I can communicate with words but I do speak quickly and can get unsure. I just need more time to respond. 

I don’t really like busy places as It can hurt my ears which is why you can often find me wearing my (yellow) ear defenders.

I enjoy going to school and playing along side my friends. My school has the best children and teachers.

I'm very sensory my family give me lots of sensory activities my favourite is a glow bath (with lavender)

 I love eating food. πŸ˜†

I enjoy playing in the garden on the swings and trampoline. 

Im very happy girl who loves to play and be where I'm familiar.

Social Activities

REACH North West provide parent and carers with activities that aim to bring parent and carers together and form a network of support with those that understand. The activities include breakfast club and other get togethers.
