Today, we had a staffing for David. These occur monthly. Participants include social workers, therapists, and parents. By all accounts, he is doing well. For the most part he is stable. Residence staff reported that since the seizure on Friday, David has been rather subdued. He seems to be nervous or upset about what happened. He doesn’t spend a lot of time talking about it.

I had to go after him to ensure that he didn’t get into anything he wasn’t supposed to. Once he was outside, I hollered for him to stop and talk to me. He was about half a city block away and picking up speed. Staff at this point was coming out of the residence. So I told them that he was running away from us.
