I have a 7 year old son who has severe GDD,he is mentally and physically impaired,on the same level as a 6 month old.He is totally dependant,can't walk,talk or do anything for himself,he is bound to a wheelchair.He's been going to a day centre for the last 3 years, so there has been progress as he's doing little things he never did before.Even though he is immobile,he is very active,he rolls around when he's on the floor and he is able to kick his legs and flap his arms,he doesn't like to use his hands though.He also can't focus for long and because of that he doesn't really play with toys as he doesn't look at them,he would lightly pick it up when he feels it and then let it fall again.He loves it when you talk to him and play with him and read stories and he loves being outdoors around greenery. What I would like to know is there anything else I could do to stimulate him.
