What is the documentary about?
Katie Price: Harvey and Me is a deeply personal film about Katie and her disabled son Harvey in a crucial year of his life as he turns 18 and becomes an adult.
It’s an exciting milestone for them both, but for some disabled young adults like Harvey it also brings a daunting uncertainty as the people and places that have cared for him as a child are about to change.
Now Harvey and Katie must navigate this transition together and Katie has some tough decisions to make on Harvey’s behalf and in doing so she must also learn to let go.

What medical condition does Harvey Price have?
Harvey was born with Septic Optic Dysplasia, a rare disorder that affects brain function, hormones and vision, and affects 1 in 10,000 births.
He has a long list of medical and behavioural conditions and his future is unpredictable.
As he moves into adulthood, it marks a transition into unchartered territory as there are no other adults known to have Harvey’s combination of conditions.
This because Harvey also has Prader-Willi syndrome which is a genetic condition that can impact muscle tone and the function of the nervous system.
As well as this, those with Prader-Willi syndrome are more likely to have learning difficulties.
Often, it also sparks a constant desire to eat food and a permanent feeling of hunger which leads to child obesity.
