Johnny is a calm and affectionate boy who is happiest when he gets to play. He likes toys he can drag and building toys especially when they are colorful. He finds it very fun to build little towers and then destroy them. Johnny enjoys spending time with other kids, even though sometimes he might be shy at first. He relates positively to them but prefers it when they take the lead to talk to him. He is very receptive in his relationship both to kids his age and adults.
Johnny has a diagnosis of Down syndrome with developmental delay, a gastrostomy and thyroid profile within the normal upper limit for his age. He is a little late for his age on his speaking and would do best in a family that can help him work on this. His family must be very loving and work consistently on his development.
