Special Need: down syndrome, low birth weight (4th degree premature), heart malformation, encephalopathy, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, developmental delays
Sweet little Emmett was born very premature which resulted in his heart and lungs not being fully developed. He was in an oxygen tent for 4 months. Emmett can grasp onto toys but he does not manipulate them. He does not look for the toys. He reacts to contact by adults but he shows emotions poorly. When his face is stroked, he will sometimes smile. He utters sounds and syllables when trying to communicate with adults around him.
