Diagnosis: Down syndrome
Danny lives in an area in his country that will allow for very short travel.
From the evaluation done the month of his 2nd birthday:
Danny can sit up unassisted. He crawls and can pull to a stand and take steps next to a stable support. He will roll a ball when playing with an adult. He eats soft foods from a spoon. He claps his hands and is beginning to play with toys. He will push the buttons on the toy piano, take objects out of a box and spin a toy disk. His attention span is increasing and he readily interacts with adults and seeks out interactions with the other children in his group. His speech is developing. He is saying a variety of syllables, including “ma-ma”, “da-da” and “ba-ba”. He loves music and reacts positively to it. He shows affection toward specific adults and reacts with appropriate emotions (he gets upset if people speak harshly and he smiles/laughs when interacted with appropriately). He is physically healthy. At 2 years old, he weighed 19 pounds and was 32 inches long.
