Katie Price has shown fans her son Harvey’s new home as she prepares the disabled teen to go to residential college.
The former glamour model, 42, got Harvey a three-bedroom house to help get him used to living more independently before he moves to his new school.
Katie shared a house tour of the property with her followers on YouTube, revealing that Harvey, 18, would have a carer that stays with him in the house as well as cameras so she can keep an eye on him and speak to him.
In the video, Katie explained: ‘We’ve still got to do it up homely for him but we’ve done a lot, considering.’
She revealed that the kitchen has a dishwasher and washing machine as well as a fully stocked fridge so Harvey can start to learn to live a more independent life and do more things for himself.
In the living room, Katie showed off Harvey’s desk, adding: ‘Harvey’s got the same computer here as what he uses at school. He does his drawing here and what I’m gonna do is put all shelves up here.’
Katie added: ‘We have these cameras everywhere so we can keep an eye – even though there’s someone here – we can keep an eye, record, do whatever and talk to Harvey through the cameras.’
She also revealed that there is a room for her to stay in and that they had been storing washing on top of the doors as it served the dual purpose of stopping the doors from slamming as Harvey hates loud noises.
In her recent BBC documentary, Harvey & Me, Katie had allowed viewers to have a glimpse of the ‘meltdowns’ Harvey can have if there is a sudden loud noise like a door slamming.
Harvey was seen hitting his head on a wall after becoming overwhelmed with the noise while viewing a potential residential college for him, with Katie trying to calm him down.
She admitted that was just a small view of what his meltdowns can be like as she didn’t want to ‘exploit’ him by showing more of them.
Katie added in the video: ‘This isn’t where we live, this is where Harvey lives, ready for his transitional move to college.
‘It’s quieter for him, he gets used to his own space and there’s obviously room if someone stays the night, or if I stay, and we’re only over the road – and he absolutely loves it.’
Harvey will live in his new house until it is time for him to move into his new digs at his new college, which will cater to his many conditions, including Prader-Willi syndrome and septic-optic dysplasia.
