- Case #Quentin
Quentin was born via C-section in March 2011 and has been diagnosed with second degree hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, congenital hypothyroidism, infantile cerebral palsy, strabismus, and moderate developmental delays. He suffers from frequent viral infections.
Quentin is a jovial and playful boy who walks independently, including up and down stairs, with an increasingly steady gait, kicks, catches, and throws balls. He plays with toys purposefully, and is able to stack, scribble, and look through books. He drinks from a cup and eats from a spoon without assistance and can regulate his toileting needs with reminders.
Inquisitive Quentin responds to his name, follows instructions, and participates in simple games. While still largely nonverbal, he is producing more and more sound combinations and some words. He is an affectionate boy who appears to understand everything that is said to him, makes good eye contact, and seeks interactions with others. He has formed bonds with adults, especially with his Baba through the Grandmother Program. Quentin attends Kindergarten in the 2016/2017 school year where he has an individual education plan and works with a special teacher, speech therapist and psychologist.
Quentin continues to make noticeable developmental progress and would benefit from the interventions and resources a loving family could provide.
