We have had sweet girl Nisha’s file before but are anxious to advocate for her again. Nisha born in May of 2012 has so much to offer! We are waiting on a new update that we will post as soon as we have it but currently her need seems to be in her communication skills. When reading the report I wonder about her hearing? At this time the medical information we have is from January 2019 and is as follows:
Height: 90cm, Weight: 13kg, Head circumference: 49.5cm, Chest circumference: 50cm, Foot length: 13cm, Teeth: 21
She has not had any new treatment, rehab, surgery, or illnesses. She can alert the nannies when she needs to go to the bathroom, control her BMs and urination, and independently go to the bathroom.
She can independently eat and drink, but she needs to have help stay next to her because she can spill food. Usually she eats with a spoon. Her cognitive abilities and intelligence are average; she understands what she can and can’t do. Her communication ability is relatively poor; she will only say a few simple terms. She can communicate her thoughts and feelings through her body movements. When she says greeting words she speaks more clearly; other types of communication are relatively unclear. Her learning ability is relatively good, it’s just that compared to other children the same age her language learning is behind, but she has a relatively strong imitation ability. She does not have a history of seizures. Her vision has no impairments; she can see things. She likes to play together with the other children in her room; when they go outside to play she will also play together with other children from the home. She has a happy personality. When she sees a stranger she will first observe them, and then according to her judgement she will either avoid them or make contact. She is relatively mischievous; she is very curious about new things and is in an exploratory phase of understanding the world.
