15/10/2021 – Evening shift – carla cornelius

Shift Report:

After his arrival at 17:00, Fela was calm and happy all evening. Whilst watching T.D. Jakes ( he pointed specifically to the video he wanted which he had watched before), I offered him a manicure and pedicure. He was all smiles and Mama chatted with him on and off.

After dinner, I tried to engage him in dancing with Mama to music on youtube, but he overrode my suggestion and gave me the picture of T.D. Jakes instead. He pointed to his tongue drum so I asked him whether he wanted to play and he said yes. He did this until it was time for his snack. We left for home shortly after 20:30 to meet Zoe. He asked for “cornflakes” on the loo, but it took us a while to figure out what he meant as he was saying “cor”. Finally he got off the loo and went to the kitchen cupboard to show us. I showed Zoe the sign for cereal and will practise this with Fela over the weekend so we can all be clear as to what he means.

When we left at 21:00, Fela was just about to enter the bath and was calm and content.
