Chippenham schoolboy labelled unteachable writes book with his EYES

Jonathan Bryan (pictured left with his mother Chantal, 41), 12, from Chippenham, Wiltshire, was born with severe cerebral palsy that left him unable to walk or speak and caused 'profound and multiple learning disabilities'. Despite being written off as unteachable, Chantal refused to give up and taught him how to communicate by flicking his eyes towards letters on a board (centre). Jonathan (pictured top right as a baby) was born at 36 weeks, four days after his mother's uterus separated from the placenta when she was in a car crash. Proceeds of the book, which has a foreword by his literary hero and War Horse author Sir Michael Morpurgo (pictured bottom right), will go to Jonathan's charity Teach Us Too, which aims to make sure all children are taught to read and write.

Casey Dagget, from Fairport, New York, is opening up about her decision to share a heartbreaking photo of the final moments of her five-year-old daughter, Zoey, before she passed away from cancer on July 4 (left). 'I shared it because even though it’s a painful moment it’s a beautiful moment in our eyes,' she said.

Horrific video shows mosquitoes trying to reach human skin through a net - so how DO you repel them? Two experts offer their top tips

Horrifying video has captured mosquitoes trying to reach and bite human skin through a net. The clip, filmed by a biologist from the University of Melbourne in Australia, shows the insects repeatedly trying to pierce the net with their proboscises, or mouths. According to the CDC, 2018 is set to be the worst yet for illnesses transmitted from mosquito bites, so how can you repel those pesky bugs? Daily Mail Online spoke to two experts about what you can do to protect yourself. They recommend using repellents with ingredients approved by the EPA including DEET, oil of lemon eucalyptus, picaridin and IR3535. Gadgets such as sonic devices and 'bug-repellent' bracelets are ineffective. For clothing, they say to wear loose long sleeves and long pants with socks that you can tuck the pants into.

UK girl born without an eye has one created from her own STOMACH FAT

Three-year-old Myah Hauxwell (left, pictured before recent surgery, and right, before she was given the prosthetic eyes), from Mansfield, Nottingham, was born with microphthalmia, or small eye syndrome, which has left her blind in one eye. Doctors fitted her with a prosthetic when the youngster was just one-year-old, however, the weight of it caused one side of her face to collapse. Worried the drooping may become permanent and cause Myah daily pain, medics fitted her with a second prosthetic made out of lightweight 1mm-thick stomach fat on June 27. Although the four-hour operation to fit the prosthetic (inset) was a success, Myah, who will always be partially blind, will require a new eye at least every two years as she continues to grow.

Fathers of preemies open up about the reality of a baby arriving early

Almost one out of every 10 infants in the US is born prematurely, at least three weeks early. There is a lot of talk about the almost non-existent mental healthcare for parents of preemies.

This can stem from anxiety over the baby's medical condition and helplessness and frustration over the inability to help the baby.
