Hari ni nak cerita psl Faaeq.. Faaeq is my second son who has ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) with Hyperactivity.. or something like that :-) Well, that's what the docs said, or wrote down, in his file. Whatever it is, we're dealing with him just fine. Some odd days when the wind smells like minyak cap kapak and the sky doesn't have any cute shaped clouds, we're struggling to understand him and got frustrated with his demands.. but hey, who doesn't struggle bringing up a toddler kan? itu belum teenager lagi.. we all have our problems, our ups and downs. We have to deal with it and make the best out of it and the whole situation :)
Yesterday he found a new toy. My alphabet cutters. Bought the set quite some time ago, used it once, then tucked it away in a container.. See what he did with them :D
Typical autistic characters.. Repetitively stacking or lining up objects. This is a behavior occasionally associated with individuals with autism.
This is great. When I called him 'Faaeq... ".. he looked up!!
Eye contact, check!
.. and after playing, he packed all the cutters back in their container.
Behavior application for 'simpan': check!
eye contact lagi :))) minum susu after penat menyusun alphabets
And here're some photos of him here and there :)
flash cards session with ibu!
at our hotel room bath tub.. warm water bubble bath. they had such a great time main air!
otw back from Jelita Ostrich farm, a school trip. with cikgu azie.. look at the boy beside him, ternganga tido atas kerusi.. faaeq got special treatment tu.. hahaahhaha
dozed off on ayah's bike after came back from taska. dah mengantuk sangat satu hari tak tidur.. kitorg bubuh bantal atas lantai (takut dia tergolek jatuh) and let him slept for about half and hour on the bike before moved him inside.
He is 3 years 3 months now and responding well to his theraphy sessions. Not so much improvement on his speech (yet) but we hope he'll improve more when he's older. The neurons in his brain is struggling to connect and so are we!
Please pray for us ok!
Love, edi :)
