SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD RELEASED TO THE SHARED LIST
Gus has no known allergies, eats well, sleeps soundly through the night, and has both bowel and bladder control. Gus has good fine motor control and self-care ability. He can dress and undress himself, brush his teeth and handle other hygiene care, can eat and drink without help, can run and jump freely, and can help his caretakers with chores. Gus enjoys cleaning up around the house and helping prepare for meals.
Gus gets along well with others. He loves to play in the game room at the orphanage with his friends. He also loves to dance and draw. He is polite and shares with the other children at the orphanage. Gus has trouble communicating with others. He can understand what others say and follow directions, but he can only speak in short sentences and he does not speak clearly. Gus’ mental development is behind that of his peers. He does not know colors, shapes, and addition or subtraction, though he does understand relative size of objects (i.e. big and small). Gus needs the individual attention a family can give him to help him catch up with his peers in school.
