Age: 4 years
Special needs: cerebral palsy (he walks independently!), 2-degree hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, congenital hypothyroidism without goiter (normal thyroid status at present, no hormone therapy), persistent foramen ovale, strabismus, inguinal hernia in the right, flat foot, delayed neuropsychological development.
This boy is in a satisfactory general condition and he is gaining weight. He also has been progressing in his psychomotor development ever since he got a “baba” as part of the “Granny and grandchild” program. His fine motor skills have improved greatly.
He walks independently. He imitates actions he has observed. He makes attempts to eat independently. He reaches for toys, plays with them and examines their functions. He makes eye contact and smiles. The child enjoys interacting with adults. He has formed a relationship of attachment with his “granny”. The boy produces sounds and syllables and follows simple instructions.
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.
