Welcome to Theo's Website

Theo was born on 12 June 2009 via C-section on 42 weeks at 8 am the Friday morning. That Sunday night, the 14th; his guardian angel appeared to Theo's mom, Willa, for a few seconds. Willa has her own set of fears due to her abusive past and never thought herself to be mother material, but God has proven her wrong!

The next day André and Willa looked up the meaning of Theo's name. Theo is really short for Theodorus, originating from the Greek name Θεόδωρος (Theodōros) meaning "God's gift" And thát Theo truly is! Whoever meets Theo, is touched by the "who" he is and made aware of God of Heaven.

Theo is a social butterfly, most popular amongst his peers and adults alike! Theo is a gentle, caring little fellow, with a great sense of humour and a love for the stage. He also likes to create and build things. Lego being his favourite medium currently, but paint, clay, boxes, etc is also welcomed! Theo enjoy doing things for himself and discovering how things work.

Theo is an amazingly awesome 6 year old Autistic boy who's biggest dream is to work on a spaceship as a medical doctor. In spite of challenges Theo face daily, he is a bright and a hard working Grade1 student and a happy Chappy.

Theo is Autistic-ally Beautiful!. "AUTISM Means he won't lead an ordinary life, but an extraordinary life!" He is for sure EXTRAORDINARY! Autism is not less, but AMAZING and ABLE! Sure Autism brings lots of challenges. For some more than for others. We do not make the extreme challenges less, but we also ask that you don't make the magic nothing! Here in the middle of the Autistic-Neurotypical spectrum, we do amazing things. That is what we share and focus on.

Theo's parents, André and Willa, realised there was a problem when his speech was not developing and he did not use words in context either. Theo was diagnosed at the age of three, 2012 with Autism (ASD) including Apraxia of Speech, Hyperactivity (constant moving, running, jumping and bouncing off the walls!), Autism related sleep disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

“Bouncing off the walls” become meaningful in the Truter household. Theo literally bounces off the walls, constantly, non-stop. He jumps into the air and came down on his knees on the tile floor! The fact that he only has bruises and not broken bones most certainly classifies as a miracle. During 2014, Theo started to attend SNAP. With their assistance, Theo has become calmer, though still hyper and in constant need of movement. From no words, with hard work on Theo's side and assistance from SNAP, Theo now has 8 word sentences.

Instead of wanting us to adapt to your neurotypical world, why don't you rather step into ours! An Autistic world of fun and colour and out of the typical box thinking! Sure we have challenges, but so do you and everybody else! Our challenges are just different.

Accept & Understand; Recognised & Respected NEURODIVERSITY
