Katherine is a sweet, quiet girl with cerebral palsy and mild scoliosis. She is also profoundly deaf. She received a cochlear implant in 2016.

Katherine struggles with keeping her head up, but when she is very motivated she is physically able to find the strength. Katherine is non-verbal and requires full support for all her acts of daily living. She had a hip correction surgery for hip dislocation and this has helped a lot with positioning and pain management. She receives PT where her muscles are stretched and she works on core strengthening.

Katherine is calm and quiet. Her caregiver loves her a lot. For Christmas, she bought her lipstick and jewelry and did a photoshoot! Katherine enjoys basking in the sun on the balcony and likes when her teachers help her finger paint or read touch and feel books. She likes being held and when her caregiver kisses her forehead. She also seems to really enjoy water play and is always content and soothed.

Katherine would be a wonderful addition to a family!
