But­ler boy is not autis­tic

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

OUR ar­ti­cle last week about But­ler boy Harry Brock­lesby re­ported that Harry’s par­ents learned he could be autis­tic when he was three years old.

The ar­ti­cle did not ex­plain that a pae­di­a­tri­cian later con­firmed Harry was def­i­nitely not autis­tic.

With a need for lan­guage in­ter­ven­tion, Harry has at­tended Telethon Speech and Hear­ing for the past two years, which has made an in­cred­i­ble dif­fer­ence to his learn­ing and con­fi­dence.

“It’s be­yond our ex­pec­ta­tions; the progress he has made is un­be­liev­able,” Harry’s mum Mar­i­anne said.

North Coast Times apologises to Harry and his fam­ily for any mis­un­der­stand­ing.
