This video was shot on a snow day when his two older brothers and a dog were creating chaos around him and lots of noise in the room.

Max’s mother wrote, “Normally, Max jumps right into the chaos with his two older brothers but when he’s drowsy, he totally zones out…you can see when he tries to snap himself out of it but then zones back out.  This shows that these signs will happen even if the environment is chaotic and loud but can easily be missed because of this.” Notice how glazed his eyes appear, how is eyelids are drooping, he appears to be staring at nothing or not paying attention to what is going on around him, and the lack of emotional expressivity.  Also, note how his head nods down but he tries hard to lift it.
