ABITaiKuangCC– A 10-year-old boy with Mild Mental Developmental Delay, Mild Epilepsy, and ADHD
Lance lived with his bio parents until he was 4 years old. He has a mild mental developmental delay and is currently in 2nd grade. His language comprehension is below average and he tends to display distraction and attention deficit during academic learning. He does obey adults’ instructions and completes his coursework with reminding. While Lance was staying with his foster family, he began displaying agitated emotions and behavior responses. He was seen by a psychiatry office and a brain echo reflected a suspected diagnosis of minor epilepsy. Another psychiatry office performed a brain echo and reported no abnormal findings. The doctor reported that his epilepsy situation had been controlled, but Lance had epilepsy seizures twice in April 2011 while he was conscious and responsive. Therefore, he is seen by the psychiatry office monthly.
Lance has also been diagnosed with ADHD and is treated with the medications Strattera (25)1#QD, Tofranil (10) 1#QAM and Dogmatyl (50) 1#BID.
His birthmother intended to take her children home, but she is incapable of caring for her children due to financial difficulty and lack of parental skills. Although her original family voluntarily provides her with emotional support, they are all low-income households and could provide rare resources for support. Lance is a preteen boy with epilepsy, ADHD and mild mental developmental delay. It is difficult to locate a domestic family for him and his guardian expects that he will grow up in a stable and sound family through international adoption placement. Additionally, Lance has close relationships with his three younger siblings and he sincerely hopes he will keep in touch with them in the future.
