Diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Kenneth has been attending Camphill Blair Drummond as a day student since September 2012. When he started at eighteen years old he lacked confidence and found it difficult to interact with others.
Since starting at Camphill, Kenneth has developed a keen interest in art and has been encouraged to do and try new things – craft classes with Cliff; woodwork with Greg; and the choir. Making friends or developing relationships had just never happened for Kenneth, but Camphill has completely turned this around. He now openly talks about other day students, residents and members of staff, and seems to have a very good rapport with everyone. The visit of HRH Princes Anne just “sealed the deal” for Kenneth; he was aware of who she was and how special and important a day it was.
Kenneth is now a much more independent young man who very much enjoys trying to do things by himself without his mum, Bronwen, stepping in. Bronwen believes that he is now less anxious, much more confident and enjoying his life.
She says “A parent can only wish that their child is happy and healthy – Kenneth now is. His attendance at Camphill has allowed me to continue working, safe in the knowledge that my son is being well cared for and nurtured”.
