AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD

At the age of 15 months he began participating in an Infant and Children education program. He was able to hold his head up and sit with support. He knew his name and responded when called. He liked to stare at people and was able to grasp a toy with his hand. At 18 months he could roll over freely and liked to sit in a chair and watch children playing around him, following them around with his eyes. He would watch adults mouths when be spoken to and would initiate moving his lips. While lying on a mat he could prop his body up to be able to look around. Adam was said to be shy and quiet and fond of listening to music and playing games.

JULY 2016 UPDATE BELOW: 

Overall Adam’s health has been good and he’s not received any special treatments, only rehabilitation. His intelligence was considered similar to other children. He could stand but not sit alone. Could not crawl on hands and wasn’t speaking. Adam was still wearing diapers and participated in early education lessons. He liked to play with other children and be with adults, and liked to play in the classroom.

SEPTEMBER 2017 UPDATE BELOW: 

Adam could sit alone and climb, and was learning to stand alone by holding on to something. He wasn’t yet feeding or dressing himself. He could stack 2-3 blocks and his intelligence was said to be behind his peers. He wasn’t speaking yet, only babbling, but could understand simple one-step commands and understood what “yes” and “no” meant. He couldn’t yet point out body parts and preferred familiar caretakers. When Adam was sad he could be comforted with hugs. He liked playing with rattles, cars and plush toys, and was no longer receiving rehabilitation treatment.
