Joshua Taylor’s visit to Great Ormond Street,
On Monday 20th October we went to
Thank you for all those who continue to pray for Joshua. Sometimes it can feel that although day to day not much is changing, when we consider how far we have come we are very thankful.
The Taylor Family
We would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support regarding Daniel.
Daniel was seen by a paediatrician in mid-November for further investigation. The paediatrician would like to see Daniel a couple more times before confirming the diagnosis of Autism. She would like to see how he will progress with his various therapies and see where
he fits on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
ASD is a lifelong development disability that affects social and communication skills. People with Autism may behave in unpredictable ways and have sensory issues and repetitive behaviours (to name a few) as a result of their difficulty in understanding language and social situations.
In the meantime Daniel will be seeing a specialist speech therapist (2nd Dec) to deal with his communication and food issues. An Educational Psychologist is due to see him at the end of November, whereas his occupational therapy should begin early next year.
On the 4th of December Daniel will be having an Auditory Brain Response Test at the LRI under General Anaesthetic. Please pray that everything will go as smoothly as possible.
If you would like to know more information about ASD and/or dates of Appointments please come and see me.
Thank you for praying!

Many people have asked us what we think of
On a more personal note, you will perhaps be aware that my sister Emily has been diagnosed with more tumours, this time on her oesophagus. This is naturally awful news to receive so soon after her last major operation and the whole family would appreciate your prayers. Please thank God that we will all be together in the
All being well, we hope to come and see you all in December and do thank you again for all your prayers and support.
