Our Stories - Lewis Woollon

Lewis Woollon lives a life of isolation, forbidden from mixing with other kids in his school.

The eight-year-old from Kirkintilloch suffers from Autism, which places his behaviour at the far end of the spectrum.

Explained mum, Anne: ”Lewis is a wonderful little boy, but because of his volatile behaviour, life can be a bit of a rollercoaster ride.

“He can turn on you in an instant, and might attack with full force.

“For the last year, the school has found it necessary to segregate him from the other children for their protection.

"I hate the thought of him being on his own during the day, unable to mix with other children.

“Just this week, he attacked his teachers quite severely and one had to have medical treatment.”

Offering a ray of hope is The One Test, a series of examinations which can be carried out to see if the youngster is deficient in nutrients, which could have an impact on his behaviour.

The tests may also establish if his diet contains anything which could also result in behavioural changes.

The Teddy Bear Foundation is funding these tests to the tune of £365 in the hope that they may provide the key to a new life for Lewis and his family.

Added mum Anne:”In the past few years, Lewis has caused a lot of damage in the house, amounting to thousands of pounds.

“He also has an 11-year-old brother, whose life has also been greatly affected as he doesn’t get to do the things other families do.

“We can’t thank the Teddy Bear Foundation enough for this donation.”

Lewis Woolon's life could be transformed by the tests.
