My name is Patrick and I am 4 years old. I first been diagnosed with Global Developmental Delay at 9 month old and with SYNGAP1 3.5 years old (September 2020). I love water play, spinning toys and spinning itself, cause and affect toys with light and noise, hanging upside down, listening nursery rhymes, just running up and down wearing my special shoes and insoles. When I get distress or frustrated my blanket and mummy's hug calms me down the best. I am still non-verbal but I use my gestures and body language to let adults know what I want. Patrick started to bubble 2 month ago and he tries to form words that not yet understandable.
