Using his bubbly personality and new-found confidence, Charlie has undertaken a leadership role within the group, which is to welcome the new participants to the group, and to show them what we get up to and how we run the sessions.
According to Ellie, his leadership helps “ease them into the programme more comfortably”.
She went on to add, “I have also noticed, in terms of Charlie’s personal development, that he’s more willing to give everything a go, and is more confident when talking and playing with others.”
Charlie continues to attend every session with excitement and his rapport with Ellie is ever-growing, with him recently stating, “Ellie is the best possible leader”.
Charlie’s parents, also praised Ellie, saying:
“Ellie has been fantastic, warm, welcoming and approachable.
“She’s built a good relationship with us and the other parents and has a real knowledge of Charlie’s and other children’s needs.”
Charlie also recently got the chance to meet former Norwich City player, Christoph Zimmerman and current player, Tony Springett, and even take some pictures with him which he described as “amazing”. He was later awarded with his very own Realising Potential certificate, which is a credit to his hard work and good nature.
