Shilo vocalizes a lot but doesn’t speak any words yet. She shows the ability to form healthy attachments. She loves her caregiver and tracks her with her eyes as she walks around the room and kicks her legs and moves her arms when she needs her attention.
Shilo’s dosage for her spasticity has been altered and her muscle tone has really improved. Shilo has greater than partial head control and is learning to sit well by herself with her hands propping her up on the ground. Her therapist is working on core strengthening with her and helping her to balance on all fours. She also spends a lot of time in functional standing.
Shilo enjoys water play. With the assistance of her teacher, she splashes water around a sensory bin; using cups, shovels, and other water toys to manipulate and move the water. Her favorite game is when her caregiver counts to three and then leans her backwards. As her caregiver starts to count, a grin will flash in anticipation of being “thrown” backwards. When her teacher sings the I Love You, You Love Me song, Shilo smiles and vocalizes. When her teacher hugs her in the song, Shilo leans in for a kiss too! Shilo is a deep lover of life and friendship and would thrive in a family of her own.
