My name is Leo and I’m 9 years old. My mom and I do almost everything together! She dances with me, we cook and clean together, and we love to garden. Our favourite ritual is Friday pizza and movie night. I love to visit my FAMILY in Muskoka, where I help grandpa light the campfire and Grandma and I bake the best banana bread. My older cousin Jasmine (and her adorable Dachshund Lulu) and I love to go for walks, cuddle with Lulu and play Minecraft together.
Through amazing early intervention and lots of support and dedication from my mom, I’ve learned to talk and sing; I tell the most amazing stories and love to talk about my favourite movies. I love to do things for myself and my FUNCTIONal skills allow me to be very independent. The wonderful Nancy from KidsInclusive has helped me learn to ride my bike and skate on the ice in the winter!
Because of all the early support I got, I am able to do almost anything I like for FITNESS! I love to dance, climb, swing, run, bike, scooter, and swim. I can run faster than my mom, and love to throw huge rocks in the lake to make big splashes
I love to spend time outside hiking, riding my bike, visiting the lake and playing. Imaginary play makes all my adventures so much more FUN! I love to sing songs from my favourite movies (like Lion King, Madagascar, Toy Story or Moana) and I don’t mind car rides as long as mom puts on some Disney tunes!
I love to play creative, imaginary games with my best friend Callen. We play Wild Kratts, and also love to build train tracks, race tracks, and have dance parties. At school I love acting out scenes from my favourite movies with my FRIENDS. My teachers say I am a very caring friend, who is sensitive and loves to help others.
There are so many things I’d like to do in the FUTURE when I grow up – like drive a car or a fire truck. I’d love to be a fire fighter and rescue people. I also think I’d like to be a kindergarten teacher because I love reading to little kids. Of course I love dogs so much, I might like to take care of dogs when I grow up. Or maybe I could be a chef, I do love to bake and cook.
