Description

Name: Ali
Age: 17
Appearance:

Personality: Ali can be very half and half with people, if he knows who they are he will be very sweet and welcoming but with new people he can be very unsure about them and generally shut them out. This of course ultimately depends on how his day has gone so far. Ali is slow to react to conversations as his brain needs time to formulate and answer. He does take thing literally sometimes so is and easy target for bullies. Even though Ali doesn't talk that much he likes to be in a safe group either of friends or family, mainly family.


History: Ali was diagnosed with autism at a young age since he had not met the recommended milestones for a child his age, he would stare at things that were small and detailed things such as carpets and lampshades. It took him a while to talk to his parents and of course other siblings, he found it hard with all the changes at school with subjects changing rapidly and pressure to get work finished. He developed relationships slowly with other people in school but didn't maintain good conversation and commitments to going places. He started to write things down that happend in the day so that he could make sure that nothing changed in his routine. He does needs help with certain things but will not ask for help from anyone so he may either just stand still on the spot or hum to himself in order to calm himself down.

At the moment Ali hasn't been sleeping well, he puts off sleep in order to figure things out,certain problems or situations he has faced in the day. The bullies at school make him worried about things and confuse him greatly. He usually doesn't sleep for a few days, but lately he hasn't slept for a couple of weeks, and his autistic traits are showing more and more as he seems to get more agitated the more tired he is.

Other: Ali does spend most of his time alone either writing or organising his space, he collects things such as Pokemon cards, Lord of The Rings memrobillia and things that he finds interesting. He hates anything being changed, for example furniture being moved things not going the way it usually does. When upset Ali will either scream out or throw himself on he floor and pull at his hair, if someone else has upset him he will throw something or attack whoever has upset him.

A few years had past now after the birth of his son Alistair, he was a lovely little boy and growing up so fast. He was quite very quite in fact he barely spoke, didn't like loud noises on the odd occasion and he and Kathy did fight. He would sit on the floor staring at the celing watching the shadows dance across the room.

The family was sitting in the living room, Ali was sitting on the floor drawing in a book rocking slowly back and forth humming to himself, Mark was watching the local football game. Turning to his wife he spoke " Kathy? I know you may think I'm being paranoid. But I do think there's something wrong with Alistair. He doesn't let us hug him unless he hugs us, he doesn't speak yet and even if he doesn't it's things he repeats. And I've seen him spinning around in the garden. I think we should consider taking him to a doctor."

Mark was shocked at his wife's outburst at his comment about Ali, the doorbell rang and Mark stood walking past Ali who was sitting on the stairs, his fingers tracing the gaps in the banisters he looked to the door as Mark opened it. Walking to the door Mark smiled to the man who was holding out a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates, Kathy's favourite.

" thanks a lot, you've came at just the right time" Mark smiled handing over some money, he stopped Ali from going out the door, distracting him with a soft. Key ring on his keys. Ali walked into the living room sitting down and looking at his paper.

Mark closed the door and walked through to the kitchen " Kate?" He spoke putting down the flowers and chocolate. He wrapped his arms around her kissing her neck softly. " I'm sorry baby, I'm just worried about Ali, he's different and I think you know that too" he turned her around pointing to the flowers and chocolates " you thought I forgot? Happy anniversary" he kissed Her on the head.

Ali hummed softly as he looked at the tv, his hands tapping together.

Mark rested his head on Kathy's, he hated when Kathy was in a mood with him he felt like nothing could be done. He hadn't forgot about Ali's birthday, but he didn't know what to get him. Ali barely spoke so he didn't really know what to get him, he liked drawing and when Mark read stories to him of a night. Other than that he didn't know what Ali would like.

" Do you have any idea what we should get him? Perhaps some paints" He asked " You know it is our anniversary, how about when Ali is in bed we can watch a film, have a drink or two and just spend time together. Sound good?"

Ali walked into the kitchen a picture in his hand that he had drew, it looked like a tree with the sun in the corner. Tapping his mother he held up the picture his eyes on the floor. He looked out the window seeing a cat, his mind connecting to things he had seen to do with a cat. String, fish, beds, fluffy tails and sharp claws. " Cat" he said pointing out the window.
