Alvaro needs individual sessions with a speech therapist and psychologist.

Update June 2016:  Although he does not really interact with peers, Alvaro enjoys being in the company of adults, receiving their personal attention and being caressed. He prefers playing with balls and cups.

Alvaro eats transitional food. He is making attempts to feed himself independently, while the adult is only helping him scoop the food with the spoon. Alvaro’s sleep is calm.

This boy would benefit from individual sessions with a speech therapist and psychologist.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, he will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for him.
