Diagnosis: delays in development
Alvin lives in a family style group home. We are waiting on new information on his development. At the time of the previous report, he was not independently walking, but he could walk behind a support (such as a walker), could cruise around furniture and walk while holding someone’s hand. He was mimicking speech and his communication was starting to develop. He is reported to have a high palate and a tongue “drawn forth” with a notation that this could impact speech. He is shy around unfamiliar people, but engages with familiar adults. He makes eye contact and is eager to be hugged. He enjoys playing hide and seek.
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.
