DOB: July 12, 2006
Main diagnosis: Down syndrome
UPDATE MAY 2011- From someone who visited with Landon: He is always smiling when surrounded by people and actively participates in the games. He loves music and watches the children shows on TV with great pleasure. He eats independently and learns with ease – he is very perceptive. He puts on and takes off his shoes independently, eats independently and drinks from a glass. He knows the children and serves them from bowls. He is able to scratch within the boundaries of the paper and likes to draw. He is able to pronounce syllables but he is not able to speak and articulate separate words yet, but the staff believes that he can learn to do this. Knowing the other children, when being told “bring Georgi”, he stands up and brings the child. He knows the difference between the clothes and the shoes of the other children, takes and arranges objects and as he is very impressionable he examines them with great interest.. He smiles, hugs the adults and is very communicative.
From his medical report:
Landon has had surgical treatment for GI issues and a ventral hernia. He wears glasses 2-3 hours a day. He walks, pushes toys, runs and climbs. He actively participates in games with other children and imitates what he sees the other children do. He turns the pages in a picture book, stacks blocks and places rings on a stick (a stacking toy). He enjoys music class and will mimic the motions along with the other children.Landon is described as "very social". He answers to his name and will come when called and follows simple verbal instructions. He is making sounds and saying syllables but is not yet using words to communicate. He prefers the contact of adults and seeks out their attention.
We have many photos of Landon available, including a baby picture!
