My granddaughter is now 5 and was diagnosed with Intantile Spasms at age 6 months. Her diagnosis was changed to Lennox Gastaut at approximately age 3. She speaks only a few words and suffers from SEVERE ADHD. She literally won't sit still for longer than 30 seconds at a time. The only thing she really enjoys doing but even this she can't focus on is coloring and writing on the sidewalk with sidewalk chalk. She loves Bubbles and taking a bath. We've bombarded her with colors, coloring books, sidewalk chalk and bubble bath and bath toys. I've bought every learning toy imaginable but show won't sit still long enough to really play with them, even when you try to hold her in your lap and play with her. I'm at a total loss for new toys or ways to entertain. Anyone else experiencing anything like this and/or have suggestions of toys or other items that would be beneficial to her or helpful? I would appreciate any input from you all. Thanks so much!!!
