Anthony Reed 11 years old
March 26, 2006
He’s non verbal,developmental delayed, autism, tuberous sclerosis,seizure disorder, dystonia and his JHD repeats are 86. His Dad has HD and lives in the nursing home.
The school Anthony goes to is for only special needs children been good for him. But he has been picking up bad habits that he never did before. He is non-verbal but if we ask him to tell us about his day, he will just babble and babble telling you all about his day. He really try’s to talk. He was doing real well with baby sign language but like any child that has Asthma or ADD if they don’t want to do something they are not going to do it. That how he is “STUBBORN” but a lover. This is our boy every day of his life right now and not getting any better. It really really sucks to see him go through this. Have to tell him head up all the time. He picks it up and down it goes no strength at all in his neck.
His favorite color is Orange. He loves Monster Trucks, he won’t look at the tv unless the monster trucks are on. He loves to play in the water, climb, run. Anthony Loves toys that play music and or make noise. Anthony’s obsessed with flash lights & playing with garden hose with or without water. He also love’s walking around Freedom Lake Park, There is a lake in the center and he love’s walking around this lake. We have to start exercising his legs starting to get very weak so we had him yesterday pushing me around the block in my wheelchair and he was laughing so hard that it was so much fun and I was laughing hard too it’s hard to say now that its getting warm outside that’s where he wants to be.
His favorite DVD is The Giggle Bellies Musical Adventures Volume 1. It’s all singing & full of bright color, he will watch this for a long time, we can play this over & over and he is as happy as a bug in a rug.
