Michael from Texas



from Texas

Meet Michael! He is a very loving and active boy who is full of energy. Michael tends to play by himself; however, he is now starting to interact more with others during play time. He can be redirected and will follow directions. Michael loves to swim and run around. The kitchen is his favorite place to be as he loves to eat! He is a clever and persistent child. Michael is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Michael benefits from close, individual attention and supervision. He also benefits from having behavior modeled for him. Although Michael is non-verbal, he is learning new ways to express his wants and needs. Michael shows affection by sitting on one's lap, hugging, and laying his head on you. He has a lot of energy and new experiences to share with his forever family!

Michael will do best in a two-parent household that is able to provide a lot of supervision. He will benefit from caregivers who are knowledgeable about Autism and will seek and continue therapeutic interventions. His family will be patient as Michael has a hard time expressing his wants and needs. Caregivers will be proactive, understanding, and flexible. Michael will acclimate better to a structured home.
