Diagnosis: Congenital bilateral cataract; bilaterally clubbed feet – surgically corrected; Hypotrophy of bottom extremities; Auto-aggression and stereotypical movements that are common in children with blindness
Deliya has cataracts that could possibly be corrected with surgery. At this time, surgery is not planned in her birth country and she is considered significantly visually impaired at this time. Deliya sits unassisted and has begun to walk while holding on to furniture or touching the wall. She can say 2-3 words and imitates sounds. She does not appropriately play with toys and is considered to be lagging behind in all aspects of her development. However, she cannot SEE and she is not receiving therapy to help her overcome her physical limitations. She seeks out the attention of adults and moves toward their voices. She will respond with touch if other children initiate contact with her.
The agency has several new photos and videos of her.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.
