Katie Price says raising disabled son Harvey is a ‘constant battle’.
Katie has spoken of the day-to-day obstacles that affect life with Harvey aged 19. Harvey is her eldest child and is partially blind. He also has Prader-Willi syndrome, autism and ADHD. She spoke to Simon Thomas on the Life, Interrupted podcast.
Harvey will soon be heading off to residential college and has been accepted for his first choice college, National Star.
Speaking to Simon, Katie said: “There’s lots of obstacles we go through, it’s very day to day, I don’t think people realise how how hard it is, you even have to shout him to get him dressed.
“It’s just a constant battle.”
Katie has spoken out to say how she will always stand by Harvey, “because Harvey is such a lovely boy, that you can have so much fun with him.”
Katie is worried though about Harvey heading off to residential college. He has spent time in a residential home though, so has had a taster of what to expect.
Katie said: “At residential every night he rings and says ‘Mum, I need you, I miss you, I want cuddles.
“That’s why it’s going be hard for me and him, because the colleges I’ve picked are like a good three or four hours away, because they’re the best ones for him. He needs this for him and he needs to be independent.”
Speaking to the Sun after the alleged attack earlier in August Katie said: “I’ve got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital.
“I’m still all dazed. I’m devastated. I’ve told police that I was assaulted, and am in shock that this happened…
“I ran to [son] Harvey’s house and have now done damage to my feet, which I previously injured.”
