- Case #Esme
Esme was born prematurely in February 2014. She has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, mild spastic quadriparesis, microcephaly, epilepsy, strabismus, a congenital heart defect (persistent foramen ovale), and developmental delays. She has a history of shaken baby syndrome.
Esme is a social, playful little girl who adores receiving attention and interacting with adults. She shows a keen interest in watching what those around her are doing. Esme has formed attachments with some of her caregivers and also reacts with joy to seeing new faces. She loves toys, especially those that are mechanical or produce sounds, and will play with them for a long while.
Esme crawls on her own and attempts to walk with an adults assistance. Based on a video we received, it is apparent that Esme understands at least some of what is being said to her and joyfully complies with verbal requests to show what she can do. She babbles and tries to imitate sounds and syllables but is nonverbal at this time. Esme eats and sleeps well and loves taking baths or showers.
