Mike has a silly sense of humour and enjoys laughing and chatting with his team. Mike’s hobbies include playing computer games, treasure hunting, metal detecting, and watching 80’s cartoons. Mike also enjoys spending time in his garden growing a variety of plants. He recently received a new greenhouse, so he has been helping the team find their green fingers. Who knows, Mike may become the new Alan Titchmarsh. Mike also has 2 cats and some fish. Mike is autistic with a learning disability and needs support in understanding the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ which can be challenging, but the team are there to find creative and unique ways of helping his understanding such as creating a bespoke newspaper that has helped Mike develop and try new things. The 3 P’s are essential to build a good relationship with Mike, you need to be patient, positive, and proactive, If he feels you are bossy or disinterested, a good relationship will be difficult to maintain.
