Fela was at Carla and michaels when I arrived on shift and we went up to pick him up as he was dismissing his breakfast. I done the board with fela and he became agitated (please see Arousal state) fela clearly did not want to go shopping so this was taken off the board. We returned home and fela sat in the rocking chair and was getting agitated on and off listening to music and telling staff to go.
We then had lunch and fela was becoming agitated during lunch and he then lay down on the sofa and told staff to go.
it has been a very low stimulation day with fela staying in the living room all day listening to music. We done the board and put flip out on and fela seems to to perk up a bit and calm. He gave a thumbs up to flip out.
we headed to flip out and although fela was more vocal there than usual he seemed to enjoy it. He had dinner in the car after and we returned home. Fela then had a dvd and his snack and is now splashing away in the bath much calmer
