WHEN ADAM WAS BORN MY WIFE WAS CONCERNED AT HIS LOOKS IE: A VERY BROAD NOSE.

IT WAS FROM THIS MOMENT THAT THE DOCTORS STARTED TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR OTHER CHILDREN

IE:DOES ADAM LOOK LIKE THEM

AT 6 WEEKS OLD ADAM DEVELOPED A HEART MURMUR AFTER LOTS OF TEST HE WAS TRANSFERRED TO A CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL IN MANCHESTER (PENDELBURY CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL) THERE HE SAW A DR PATEL HE INFORMED US ADAM NEEDED A OPERATION

MY NAME IS ADAM SCOTT JONES AGE 7 D.O.B 28/3/92 I LIVE IN A PLACE CALLED BOLTON IN ENGLAND.

HE HAD AN WHOLE IN THE HEART AND A PDA.

THE OPERATION WAS DONE AT THE AGE OF 8 MONTHS THE OPERATION TOOK LONGER THAN NORMAL SO HE ASK A

DR SUPER TO HAVE A LOOK AT ADAM ONCE HE HAD RECOVERED FULLY FROM HIS OPERATION

DR SUPER TOOK A SKIN SAMPLE AND EXAMINED HIM (ADAM IS 15 MONTHS OLD AT THIS TIME ) THE DOCTOR SUSPECTED

ADAM HAS R. T. S HE HAD ALL THE CHARACTERISTICS. A FEW MONTHS LATER IT WAS CONFIRMED AS R.T.S ADAM HAS DEVELOPED SLOWLY.

HE HAS TO WHERE HEARING AIDS AS HE HAS VERY POOR HEARING BUT NOT TOTALLY DEAF, HE GETS VERY CONSTIPATED IF HE DOES NOT HAVE MEDICATION (SENA SYRUP) HE ALSO NEEDS ANOTHER OPERATION ON HIS EYES HE AS NO CHANNEL BEHIND HIS NOSE.AND WE HAVE FOUND HE SCARS VERY EASY AND THEY ARE VERY PROMINENT WHEN HEALED.

ADAM IS A VERY ACTIVE CHILD AND NEEDS LOTS OF ATTENTION HE ATTENDS MAIN STREAM SCHOOL AND HE AS A SPECIAL NEEDS TEACHER HE LIKES TO WATCH TV, LISTEN TO MUSIC, AND HE LOVES YOU READING TO HIM.

ADAM GETS OBSESSIVE ABOUT THINGS IE: HOVERS, HOUSE ALARMS,CARS, SOMETHING NEW EACH MONTH.

I FIND IT DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND SOMETIMES BECAUSE ADAM HAS A VERY GOOD MEMORY FOR THINGS, AT ONE TIME HE COULD NAME EVERY MAKE OF HOVER IN THE SHOPS SAME SORT OF THING WITH ALARMS TOO YET HE HAS TO HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS AT SCHOOL, HE IS ALSO A CREATURE OF HABIT THING HAVE TO BE DONE THE SAME WAY EACH TIME LIKE WALKING TO SCHOOL WE CANNOT CROSS THE ROAD ANYWHERE IT AS TO BE IN THE SAME PLACE .ADAM HAS A VERY LOW CONCENTRATION, HE GETS ON WELL WITH CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN HIMSELF, HIS DEVELOPMENT IS AROUND 5YRS 3MTHS, HE IS ALSO VERY STRONG AND HARD TO CONTROL SOMETIMES.

ADAM IS A LOVING GENTLE CHILD OUR SON AND WE LOVE HIM VERY MUCH AND WOULD NOT HAVE HIM ANY OTHER WAY.

LIVING WITH A R. T. S. CHILD CAN BE HARD BUT WE ARE LEARNING ALL THE TIME.

THANKS
