OSCAR'S PROFILE

Age: Eleven | Ethnicity/Race: Canadian/Aboriginal

You haven't met a true bookworm until you've met Oscar! This studious young man is one that easily gets lost in the world of books. Whether it's sailing with Columbus to faraway places or learning about the world's religions, Oscar will wow you with his knowledge of facts about the world.

OSCAR BELIEVES...

“Develop a passion for learning.
If you do, you will never cease to grow.”
– Anthony J. D’Angelo

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Personality Academics
Oscar is well liked by his friend! They are also very understanding of his difficulty with social interactions and appreciate his sweet, endearing and engaging personality. Not to mention they really enjoy his wonderful sense of humour! Oscar loves school and looks forward to learning. He is in a regular classroom and has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for communication. He receives help in his written work to support his motor skills and to help get all of his thoughts down on paper. He also has an iPad to assist with typing his work. Oscar attends an after-school daycare program once per week and really enjoys this. Academically, he is working at grade level and keeping up with his work. His teacher describes him as happy and cooperative.
Special Considerations Matching Considerations

Oscar will need ongoing support in developing his fine and gross motor skills. He is currently involved with an Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) program, through which he is receiving occupational therapy assistance. At this time, the focus is on helping Oscar with independence and self-care skills.

Oscar is looking forward to meeting his adoptive family. He would do best with caregiver(s) who will see his amazing personality and capacity. He is a loveable little boy who has not yet reached his potential for growth and needs a family of his own to help him get there. At this time, Oscar is not involved in any recreational activities; however would benefit from this once a caregiver can help him understand his interests and talents. Caregiver(s) who can help Oscar build on his strengths and social skills will be helpful for him. A family who love learning as much as he does would be ideal, as Oscar loves reading and sharing facts about many topics.
Openness Questions?
Oscar has face-to-face visits with five of his siblings. He is the oldest in a sibling group of seven. An access order is currently in place for four, two-hour visits per year with his siblings. Additional sibling contact could be beneficial. Oscar also has visits with his paternal grandparents a few times per year (not a court order) and this is a beneficial connection for him. A home that is willing to embrace this would be best for Oscar. His paternal grandparents are supportive of adoption planning for their grandchildren. Oscar will need a family also open to the potential of openness with birth mother in the future. Please see Oscar's profile on the AdoptOntario Waiting Children list with the case ID 16131.
