AGENCY DESIGNATED SPECIAL FOCUS CHILD

Liam’s medical report states congenital laryngeal stridor but a nurse said this had no influence on his health. He is also suspected to have contracture of joint soft tissue at his neck which makes it look short. Liam’s adoption report was written when he was 13 months old and he was described as a happy child. He was able to raise his head when lying on his stomach, roll over and sit alone. He was unable to stand and had delayed physical development. He was able to use his thumbs and index fingers deftly to pick up small objects, could reach for, grasp and pass toys between his hands. Liam could follow a moving toy with his eyes and had normal hearing. He was described as an adorable child who would smile when amused by a caretaker. He liked to play with other children, understood what “no” meant and sometimes would babble to himself. Liam was said to be active and extroverted, liked to play with toys, watch TV and listen to music. When he sleeps he liked to hold onto a towel.

AUGUST 2016 UPDATE BELOW: 

    

Liam was still unable to stand or walk at the time of this update, however, in the videos below from when he was approximately 21 months old he can be seen trying to walk behind a walker. Although he could imitate sounds and could call his nanny, he wasn’t yet communicating with words when he wanted something. He was described as an active, lively and gregarious boy who loves to smile and play with toys.
