Diagnosis: Down syndrome, repaired ASD
Priscilla was born premature with Down syndrome and a heart condition. She had heart surgery when she was 1 yr old. Her heart condition has been repaired and she is physically healthy at this time. Her development was updated in November. At that time, she had 10 teeth, was starting to sit up independently, saying 2 words and making many sounds/word approximations and waving “bye”. It was noted that she is making rapid progress in her motor skills, speech and over all development. She lives with a group of children that have a variety of ability levels and she also has a 1:1 caregiver that spends time with her each day. She is bonded to this caregiver and reacts very positively as soon as she sees her each morning. She seeks out the attention of adults and responds very positively to them. She makes eye contact with people. She plays with toys appropriately. She will pick up a pencil and make marks on the board with it. She loves music.
