- Case #Miles
Miles was born prematurely in July 2008 with a complex congenital anomaly of the urogenital system for which he has had a number of hospitalizations and surgeries. Miles has also been diagnosed with encephalopathy and infantile cerebral palsy and wears glasses for farsightedness. Miles' overall development is significantly delayed.
Miles is a calm and joyful child who gets excited when receiving attention from familiar adults, responding with laughter, smiles, hand waving, and continuous eye contact. He is aware of the events in his surroundings, responds to his name, follows moving people or objects with his eyes, and listens intently to music. Miles stands with support and is beginning to walk more stably when held by one hand. He can hold and manipulate different sized objects and explores toys with his hands and mouth. Miles communicates mostly through a combination of sounds, shrieks, and nonverbal means. When anxious, he seeks attention and protection from familiar caregivers. He does not interact with his peers but enjoys watching them play.
Miles attends a local auxiliary school where he works with resource teachers. He is spoon-fed pureed food and drinks from a cup on his own. Miles is dependent on the care of others and is not yet toilet-trained.
