Autumn #380

380 AutumnGirl, born October 2005
Blind (fourth degree of Retinopathy), Delayed physical and neuropsychological development

This 7 years old girl can walk independently. She attends special school and follows simple instructions. She likes the adults and wishes to spend most of her time in the group with children. The girl doesn’t always like physical interactions. When she wants to be left alone she would wave her hands, spin around and cover her ears with hands. The child likes going out for walks. She is calm while traveling or when visiting a place she hasn’t been to before. She likes musical toys. She knows her name and react to it but doesn’t always like it when someone addresses her directly. She makes sounds which might be interpreted as joyful or expressing displeasure. She doesn’t speak, she repeats syllables in imitation – “pa-pa”, “ma-ma-ma”, “da-da-da”, “o-pa”.

She shows preference to food – she likes sweets, pudding, and chicken and already tries to eat independently but needs adult’s assistance. She is fed by a spoon. She hasn’t yet mastered her skills to get dresses and undressed. She takes her shoes off.

Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.
