And yet, when I look at this step now I would add even more. I would add his various trips and travels to places that interest him. I would talk more about his circle of friends and their activities and outings. I would talk about what sports he's now involved in and the many activities or hobbies he enjoys which will probably include new toys, like a jetski or golf cart. I would add that he is happy, he feels connected to his community and he loves and cherishes his family and extended family.
This is a great deal of information to think about and reflect on, so Step 3 has us look at what Sam's situation looks like now. A snapshot of the present.
This is what Sam's snapshot/present day situation looks like now. He is homeschooled with assistance from NACD, http://www.nacd.org/. His abilities vary from Preschool to 2nd Grade. He is happy, his health continues to be a concern but is improving. Sam's immune system is becoming stronger with his diet and additional supplementation of Vitamin D, CoQ10, C and Zinc. He is always hungry and his diet and access to food must be monitored. He is talking more and more with the addition of his hearing aid and Speak supplment, http://www.speechnutrients.com/. It will take Sam another year to become fully comfortable with his hearing aid and his new way of hearing. He has learned how to scooter utilizing his weaker right side. His endurance is improving. Due to his homeschool situation and health issues he currently has few friends. Sam is currently best described as an "observer" instead of a "doer".
