May 2011 update:
Bryan attends a special school and willingly attends, however he does not understand the essence of learning and has no motivation. His skills of self regulation and hygiene are well developed. He dresses himself and can tie up his shoes. He eats independently. He willingly interacts with both children and adults. Independent activity is brief and the results are minimal. He colors nicely and can do a 30-50 piece puzzle. Bryan’s behavior is unmotivated, and his mood changes frequently. He likes using his imagination and creating stories. He does not understand the concept of time. His self confidence is poor. His visual perception is underdeveloped. He distinguishes the main colors. He counts specific objects up to ten. Bryan is unable to describe what he sees in a picture, only names objects he sees. He grasps the basic elements of writing. His active vocabulary is underdeveloped for his age. Bryan is unable to grasp the concept of adoption, but he has made it very clear that he does want a mommy.
