Steven is 17 years
old now. This year he made good progress in keeping eyecontact. It`s
still only breef, but better than before. And he allows now to be
touched, but still that has not to be too firmly. His bowel movement
problems have increased. This summer it became so bad, that he had
to be hospitalized. It doesn`t work anymore without enema. So at least
every 5 days we have to do that.
Steven sits on his chair in the kitchen, waiting to be fed.
He still loves raw vegetables and all cruchy food.
is fond of rocking in this seat. That way he can move backword
with it, until being stopped by the kitchen unit that you can
see in the background. Then he tries to grab things within his
reach. That`s the time you really have to get fast :-)
loves to be in the garden. Bad thing is, he still tries to chew
and swollow everyting that he can grasp: grass,.stones, sand.....just
he is not satisfied anymore with sitting, we get him busy with
rocking on the swing (he can hold his balance there) or walking
you can see from this picture he is still not able to keep balance
when walking by himself at all. We have to hold him from the
back and guide him, keeping our body real close to Steven, for
