According to the parents, To-To used to speak 2 to 3 single words when he was 12 months old. However, he stopped doing this anymore. He had very frequent tantrums whenever his wills were not entertained. To-To’s parents strongly requested a hearing assessment for him as he did not respond to call nearly most of the time. BEHAVIOURAL OBSERVATION To-To could barely sit properly throughout the assessment session. He was noted to have poor eye contact and was not responsive to call most of the time. To-To once became very scared and screamed when he heard the noise produced by the vacuum cleaner outside your assessment room.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
