A holiday to Portugal was just the ticket for 7-year-old Jack who is a fun, happy and extremely energetic little boy, who lives with severe autism. He also has a number of difficulties. His mum Sam said a holiday with Jack would give them some desperately needed quality time together plus a chance to re-charge their batteries. The holiday ticked all the boxes as Jack came back a happier and calmer little boy.
Jack has few words and requires high level of supervision to meet his additional needs and this will continue throughout his childhood. His mum said, a holiday with Jack would be a wonderful opportunity for them to spend some quality time together having fun in the sun. Sam and Jack were excited that a dream holiday would make some wonderful memories together instead of their usual routine of work on school, tutoring and therapy.
“Dreams Come True have been absolutely incredible from start to finish. It is very difficult to find a holiday that will cater for Jack’s needs and you excelled in every area and went to every effort possible to ensure that Jack would have an amazing time – and he did. The Dreams Come True team should truly be very proud of themselves and their expertise and the compassionate and thoughtful way they do everything in their power to ensure that a dream time is had. My son has benefitted enormously from a holiday with his mummy and he has returned a happier calmer boy because of it. We also have made memories to last a lifetime and I am so grateful to have been afforded to opportunity to experience this.
I would like to say a huge thank you to the team and I sincerely hope that many other children continue to benefit from the wonderful work Dreams Come True do. They are an amazing organisation.”
Sam, Jack’s mum
