What should I do ?
R is in a particularly stimmy and hard to engage period – Started off with the start of the year with school starting. While he is just as loving as ever – he is very hard to engage in long back and forth circles of communication.
All he wants to do is nurse( another sign of stress ) , watch TV and play on the computer . Many reasons of course
- School re-starting
- Houseguests 2 weeks ago
- My back at work
- All of us are fighting a cold
- Reduced sensory diet – as its too cold to go outside
- Less Floortime – as I have been a lump
- Too much TV time over the break
I honestly think Number 4 Is the biggest reason . even his teacher mentioned that he is spacey and not alert these days
And of course since I am in a sickness fighting mode .. I am pretty tired as well
