Codey

CodeyBoy, born June 2008
PRC
Down Syndrome

Date of Observation: May 2014

Codey is a cute little almost 6 year old boy with Down Syndrome. His functioning, described as “medium” by a caregiver, was corrected by his teacher, who described him as “better than medium”! He can learn, and he speaks in meaningful language.

Codey is very cute, although he was very shy with us, strangers. He needs some physical help. He wears diapers and he needs some help dressing but he is making progress. He is described as having “good focus”, “curious”, and “naughty”. The latter has a very positive connotation in China, where naughty means, smart, funny and clever. He plays very well and interactively with the other children. It is obvious that he is really loved by the staff and his teacher.

Codey has been healthy, with no significant medical history or surgeries. He looks clean, well dressed, well nourished, and well cared for.Cody attends a special class in the orphanage where he is taught by a special ed teacher, along with a group of peers who have DS. This little boy appears to have a lot of potential. There are videos of Codey.

The agency has a $2000 grant available for Codey.
