March 2014 update:

No physical activity and initiative. Muscle tone – quadri-hypertonus and normoreflexia. Takes a passive seat with adherence, has elbow support but shows poor balance reactions. Gripping reflex – upon touch with, grips for a short while. Visual – motor coordination /hand-to-hand; Hand-foot-thigh; Hand-foot-mouth /. Visual analyzer – horizontal nystagmus, amaurosis, atrophy of optic nerve. Does not follow and fixate a bright object. Does not wince and does not orient in the direction of strong acoustic stimulus, bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Pronounced “seeking” reflex and pathological oral automatisms. Speech production – coo sounds and vocalizations. Affective reactions – heavily decreased mimical facial expression, responds to tactile stimulation, “facade” smile is observed briefly.

Autonomy – positioned entirely by an adult. She feeds with an appetite and permanently gains on weight. Sleep – short periods of wakefulness.
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.
