Other Notes: Sam's mom, Nancy, writes: "Sam is an amazing kid who has come a long way. Sam was born with his cord in a knot at birth and suffered oxygen deprivation. Sam was diagnosed PDD-NOS at the age of 4 and has been in speech, OT [occupational therapy], and PT [physical therapy] since he was 3. He recently finished a series of 40 HBOT [hyperbaric oxygen treatment] dives and his teacher said he's a different child. He has an amazing sense of humor and loves trains. Sam still has trouble regulating his emotions and has a difficult time communicating. Sam's doctor [Dr. Demio] wants to run this test to determine Sam's hormone levels, especially since Sam will be entering puberty soon." Nancy is President of the Autism Society of America - Dayton Chapter. Sam has a 17-year old brother and a 16-year old sister.
