John is 13 years old and has been coming to ELHAP from the age of 5. He has Down Syndrome and a chronic heart condition.
John loves every aspect of ELHAP. He often puts his pyjamas on at lunchtime the day before a trip to ELHAP in the hope that, if he goes to bed, he will wake up and it will be time to go!
Toby is 22 years old. He is a bright but severely autistic young man with many complex needs including OCD, minimal verbal language and challenging behaviour.
Toby started attending ELHAP when he was 7 and regularly attended our holiday and Saturday play-schemes for the next 11 years. He flourished at ELHAP, enjoying the open space, the chance to build new friendships and the regular outings to local parks, the swimming pool.
