Diagnosis: Delays in development; diagnosed as hearing impaired in October 2012-requires a hearing aide
Troy is considered to have delayed development. In October 2012, he was diagnosed as hearing impaired. He requires a hearing aide for one ear. As of Nov 30, 2012, he still did not have this hearing aide. The director of his orphanage reported that the aide had been ordered and should arrive in December.
Troy walks, runs, climbs stairs & does front handsprings. His gross and fine motor skills are considered well developed. He prefers to play on his own and he enjoys watching children’s movies on TV. He can dress himself, feed himself, puts on his shoes and holds a pen and makes appropriate lines and marks with it. He can work mosaic puzzles. He plays with toys, He can pronounce some syllables but mostly communicates non-verbally by mimicking actions and gesturing. He enjoys music if it is also accompanied by visual images. It is possible that his delays are primarily due to his hearing impairment.
Additional photos of Troy are available.
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.
