Silas #4-12

Silas 412Silas 412 2010This 7-year-old boy has congenital deformity of the lower limbs (club left foot – after surgical correction; flat feet; wears orthopedic shoes); moderate mental delay; congenital internal hydrocephalus (slight, not progressive, no surgical treatment is necessary); some disturbances in behavior.

He doesn’t often get ill. He vocalizes and follows simple commands. As a result of the extra attention he has been getting in the last several months, he has demonstrated a good rate of compensating his delays and there has been a slight increase in the intensity of his psychological activity – he wants to go out, he demonstrates how much he enjoys going for a walk, he waits and gets annoyed when he is not taken outside at the regular time. He plays with toys. He helps the orphanage staff. He loves physical contact and initiates physical closeness with familiar adults. He likes getting individual attention.

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.
