Girl, 11 years old
Epilepsy (for which she is undergoing anticonvulsant therapy), and mild mental delay
She joins everyday activities and has good leadership skills. Following her placement at the foster family (in April 2013) a positive change is seen in terms of enriching her passive vocabulary.
She uses simple sentences and makes up a logical text with them. A positive change is seen in the girl’s process of thinking. Apart from visual-figurative thinking, she is building skills for thinking aimed at problem solving and coming up with ideas and strategies. During her almost 1-year stay at a foster family environment, she has gradually been provided with options and strategies for solving problems.
This girl has built self-service habits. She is keeping her clothes clean, combing her hair, keeping her belongings in order and helping with laying and cleaning the table. She can make a sandwich for herself if she is hungry.
She is very empathetic and has a heart for weak, hurt or abandoned animals. She has started manifesting this character trait of hers after her placement in the foster family. The foster family has successfully provided emotional comfort, a feeling of safety and support to the child.
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.
