Dotty was born in March 2012 to parents who are blood relatives. She has been diagnosed with congenital anomalies of the face, left arachnoid temporal cyst, West syndrome, epilepsy, unspecified disorder of oligosaccharide metabolism, divergent strabismus, flat hemangiomas on the left shank and foot, and severely delayed development.

Dotty does not have stable head control, but turns her head toward sounds and is able to roll from back to belly. She cannot sit, stand, crawl or walk. Dotty has low interest in toys though she briefly holds them when given to her and can transfer them from one hand to the other. She is not potty-trained, does not drink from a cup, and eats pureed foods from a spoon with help. While Dotty recognizes an adult's tone of voice and smiles when jested or addressed gently, she does not appear to understand the speech of others. She is nonverbal, but produces random and diverse sound. Dotty is entirely dependent on the care of others. She works with a psychologist and receives physical therapy, speech therapy, and music therapy. Dottys development corresponds to that of a four month-old child at present.
