Sam is really good at finding the best gaming reviews on the internet but he’s not as interested in eating healthily. He has autism, which means he needs a bit more support in maintaining his health.
Sam’s a happy boy, but doesn’t like to deviate from his usual routines. He often finds it difficult to communicate to his family and carers when he’s unwell and doesn’t like too much contact.
How Shaping Our Future Wellbeing is transforming Sam’s care
Sam’s school uses Show Me Where, a Cardiff and Vale innovation that allows patients to communicate where they feel pain without having to speak. Sam’s parents downloaded the app for their iPad at home so that Sam feels comfortable to share when he’s feeling discomfort. It makes explaining symptoms to Dr. Ullah, their local GP, much easier!
