Yes, Samuel can't be overstimulated, because it triggers his asthma off, our 12 year old doesn't seem to understand this and ignores the fact that Samuel still needs attention. Samuel is only just begining to talk but not as well as we'd hoped. He has Speech Therapy to help Samuel along with his speech and cognitive skills. He goes to Kindergarten 3 days a week, Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays and the carers help Samuel with all the areas of activities along with the other children. So what the other children learn Samuel learns as well. Some times though Samuel wonders around the room because he doesn't want to do what the other children are doing. Samuel is one year behind in his speech, his speech does not seem to be improving I have noticed that he forgets some words and I have to correct the word without upsetting him so much. Other times I have to just let the incorrection go and tell him what a good attempt he made or good trying Sam. The paediatrician wants Samuel to be tested for autism but because Samuel is non verbal, and not speaking very well, and is just begining to talk they can't do anything about it until he can talk properly.
