Alexandre #28

Alexandre #28Boy, almost 2 years old
Osteogenesis imperfecta type III/IV. Emotionally he is doing very well and is very communicative!

He is very emotional and sociable child. Seeks attention by an adult. Motor functions are limited having in mind the main diagnosis and disease, but he shows initiative and willingness to manipulate toys. He grabs given to him object, transfers it from one hand to another, examines with eyes, putting in mouth, tapping. He has a good visual-motor coordination in four directions.

He often vocalizes, as cheers and syllabic chains are heard / ba ba, de-di, pa-pa/. He makes sounds when he is in his crib and when meeting with an adult he gets lively and the sound production is increased. When verbally stimulated he makes sounds reminiscent of pleasure of communicative exchange. He laughs when teased.

He began to understand the hide and seek game. He reacts very positively to this type of game. He removes a cloth placed over his face. He makes good eye contact. He likes the company of an adult. He initiates interaction with others through sounds and facial expressions. His facial expression is lively, he responds to facial expressions (smiles in response to a smile). When in contact he touches the face of the adult, follows them in space with eyes and get angry upon parting. He is a sociable and cheerful in interpersonal relations. He does not exhibit irritability in the company of other children.

His sleep is calm and rhythmical. Physiological needs – no deviations, gains weight, but he is fussy for the types of food. He is in the process of spoon feeding.

After the New Year the agency will get additional info, pictures and video of him.

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.
