Bex was born in March 2014 and found abandoned when she was a little over a year old. She has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and a private issue which she has received treatment for.
AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD
When Bex entered her institute caretakers noted that her muscular tension was high and she had poor movement ability. Rehabilitation treatment was arranged and she was moved to an NGO in December 2014. The NGO set up a plan for her and at the time of her report in July 2016, she was making progress. Bex could pick things up with her hands and put food into her mouth. Her condition affected her balance and she couldn’t stand independently but she could crawl on a mat. She was described as smart, and playful during rehabilitation training.
If she was unattended and a caretaker walked by Bex would make sounds to draw the caretaker’s attention if she wanted to be held. She is able to respond to caretakers asking her for objects and is fond of imitating, playing with toys and listening to music. She is said to be a shy girl but her favorite activity is playing with the other children.
Bex’s cognitive abilities are slower to develop than other children her age, but she can understand a lot of basic instruction and language. She receives rehabilitation training every day and likes her teachers very much. She likes to be picked up and is sad when passed by. If she hears a teacher at the door she works hard to get to the door. It makes her happy to be praised for being beautiful. Bex can distinguish between familiar people and strangers. She can be impatient and cries during rehabilitation training sometimes when she is bored with it. She is able to roll on the ground, sit alone, climb and pull up to stand by holding onto a railing. She wasn’t yet able to walk.
Bex couldn’t control the movement of her fingers well and her writing was messy. She spends about two hours each day doing rehabilitation training and hasn’t been enrolled in any schooling. She could say a few simple words and understood one step instructions, but wasn’t able to express her needs verbally. She was able to feed herself, although slowly. Bex enjoyed riding twisting cars and outdoor activities like the slide.
