congenital adrenal cortical hyperplasia , post-op sensitive special need
Precious Peyton is an extroverted child, who gets along well with other children and who is not shy with strangers. She’s very curious and loves to explore new toys. She can walk, jump, and go up and down stairs independently. Her fine motor skills are good- she can put a block in and out of a cup, open a lid, and build a tower of four blocks. Her pronunciation isn’t always clear, but is loud. When her nannies give her simple instructions, she understands and obeys. She knows the names of the other children in her group. She’s in a pre-school like setting at her orphanage, where she is learning to draw and sing children’s songs. Peyton has been diagnosed with congenital adrenal cortical hyperplasia (CAH) and she has had surgery for another sensitive need. Peyton started taking medication for CAH when she was just one month old.
Peyton has been met by a number of people who adore her. Those who have met her said she is so loving and sweet and that she is doing well developmentally. They say she has a funny personality and makes everyone laugh. She laughs a lot too and sweetly gives kisses. She loves to scribble on paper. She likes toys and playing with the stacking cups.
