Request More Information About This Child
DOB: 2013-04-14 (6 years old)
Country: Eastern Europe
Status: Forever Family Found
Child has Special Needs
(medical/physical or Developmental)
Alvin is a beautiful toddler, who is living in a foster home. He has a very healthy emotional relationship with them.
He has the following diagnoses (but read on to see how he's doing!): infantile cerebral palsy (weak muscle tone in all four limbs), bilateral pes cavus (high arch of the feet), and delayed development. He will be fitted for orthopedic shoes in early 2016. His birth mother had mental delay.
This little guy moves around freely by crawling, and scoots around in his scooter. He's doing a great job with a lot of help! His foster mom takes him to therapies daily (which he enjoys), and reinforces it at home, so he's getting a great foundation.
Alvin is vocalizing well. He repeats syllables (“ma”, “ta”, “dya”) and he uses them appropriately so as to refer to the foster mom, dad, and granddad. He has recently started using the word “bob” (beans). He uses gestures such as pointing at things or pulling so as to direct adults’ attention. He responds to being called by name. He makes good eye contact.
