Despite her CP diagnosis, Prudence is able to go up and down the stairs and walk independently, albeit her gait is not very stable.
She is nonverbal. Prudence does not understand other people’s speech and she tends to self-isolate. Prudence likes to cuddle with an adult and likes it when someone is talking gently to her. She loves listening to music and even starts smiling and dancing in her own way.
Prudence hasn’t developed any self-service skills and fully depends on the caregivers in the facility. She cannot control her physiological needs (she wears dippers). Her sleep is calm.
