Dear my niece and nephews,
You may all, at various points, notice differences in the behaviours of others in places like school and not understand why. This particular blog post is a letter to you to make you aware of a medical condition which causes differences in such behaviours. The differences may be linked to the way one may interact with others and the world in general. You might even have noticed them in me.
To make matters simple for you here I won’t go into the details of all the hows and whys.
Some examples of the ways a child may behave are mentioned below. They may:
One important thing I’d like to point out to you here is that these behaviours linked with the medical condition are not a result of naughtiness, rudeness, laziness, lack of ability or anything like that. The points written about are linked to some of my personal experiences.
Having said all that, children and people with this medical condition can, and do contribute positively to life, especially using their special talents like music. With the right support, patience and understanding, they can do well.
More information about this medical condition can be found elsewhere on this website. You can ask your mums and dads, or indeed me for some help if you ever feel you need it.
In the meantime, take care. I hope this helps you to make a difference to others’ lives.
Your uncle Stephen
