Hunter #34-5 OD
Boy, born October 2010
Hearing loss and delayed neuro-psychological development
Hunter has some residual hearing and he would benefit from a cochlear implant and hearing aids.
Hunter’s motor development is delayed and does not correspondent to the age norms. He can sit independently. He can stand up by himself when holding onto a fixed support. He grabs and holds toys for some time. He does not always respond to sounds. He focuses his attention for a short time. He recognizes faces and objects from his surroundings. He pronounces random and continuous sound combinations. He expresses his emotions by smiling, laughing and crying. He is calm and rarely cries. He does not demonstrate a great interest in his surroundings. He likes lying on his back, kicking with his legs up and making diverse sounds. In working with the child the efforts are invested in stimulating him to build a relationship with a significant person – an adult caregiver.

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.
