- Case #Millicent
Millicent was born in October 2009 and has Down syndrome. She has had surgery for repair of a congenital heart defect.
Millicent walks independently with an unsteady gait, can stack rings with minimal assistance, and plays purposefully with toys. She likes rolling or throwing a ball to a partner and pretending to feed a doll. Millicent makes good eye contact, shows interest in her environment, and understands and follows simple instructions. She is a joyful girl who initiates contact with other children and speaks some simple words. She knows her body parts and imitates dance moves when listening to music. Millicent enjoys attention and physical affection and tolerates frustrations. She feeds herself using her fingers and a spoon, drinks from a bottle on her own, undresses herself, and is in the process of potty-training. Millicent attends a kindergarten program and will begin elementary school next year.
