ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Personality Academics
Jeffrey loves music and sounds, and he has no problem making them himself by singing or humming. His love of sound is not just in hearing it, but he loves feeling the vibration that different music and sounds can make. He discovered the sound and vibration of the door stopper and loves the entire experience of hearing and feeling the sounds it makes. Jeffrey loves playing outdoors and likes to run, climb, play in water and explore. Jeffrey is a social child who can simply watch other children play or even play along with them. Jeffrey is in school full time. His previous daycare staff were sad to see him go, but he is adjusting to his change in school with some support and services. He was able to meet all his early developmental milestones with the appropriate stimulation; however, he is experiencing some delays to his development now. Jeffrey is now able to engage and interact, and he repeats most words that are said to him. Currently, he is using some words to help him communicate without being prompted to do so. He continues to make steady gains with the supports and services he has in place.
Special Considerations Matching Considerations

Jeffrey was diagnosed with sensory issues at a young age. Despite this, he continues to make steady gains with the support services provided to him. These developmental support services include occupational therapy and speech therapy. He does have a medical need that would require regular checkups until he is an adult. This condition does not currently impact him, but does require regular follow-ups to ensure his best health.

The agency is seeking a two-parent family who is accepting and comfortable with Jeffrey’s level of need. Jeffrey will need a family who is strong, patient, understanding and supportive. His family would need to be prepared to work with many different professionals to help him reach his fullest potential. It is anticipated that with the appropriate level of support and daily care, Jeffrey will be able to continue making gains. Jeffrey will need a very nurturing, predictable, structured and consistent environment. Preference will be given to families who share Jeffrey’s Roman Catholic/Christian religious beliefs.
Openness Questions?
Jeffrey would benefit from some form of openness with his birth mother through the exchange of letters and pictures.
