Growing up Kreed had many severe behaviors and most did not know how to help him. As he got older, his behaviors became more pronounced and he was unable to even really go to stores or anywhere else. He could barely ride in a car without a massive car seat to keep him in his seat. He would hit, kick, spit, throw anything in sight, drop to the floor and refuse to move and pretty much anything else you could think of. He did not communicate as well. He had a device for many years but no one knew how to use it and did not use it during therapy.
What no one realized was he was communicating through all those behaviors.
These days Kreed finally found the right people to enter his life and he communicates using a Dynavox T10 and most of his behaviors are under control. Kreed rarely does anything to be “bad” and tries very hard in all things. We are only just beginning to understand what Kreed has known through the years. It’s taken a lot of love and dedication and persistence to get Kreed to communicate and a never say “can’t” attitude. He has also had many devastating health setbacks outside of autism and not being able to communicate. I hope one day Kreed will be able to type on this blog as well as me. His awareness grows daily and we are so proud of him.
