Wonderful Walt was born December of 2010. He is diagnosed with pediatric epilepsy. As of the date of this report, his last seizure was July 4, 2011. Unfortunately this darling kid’s file is outdated by 5 years. We are going to work on an update now. A report from 2015 says the following: Walt in general has good health. He lives with a foster family and has two older brothers and one sister-in-law. The family all have a good relationship. His intellectual development is relatively backward. He has progressed in his climbing, running, swinging, dancing and he can ride a three wheeled toy. Walt has poor fine motor development. He cannot write his own name nor draw people. He can pick up and throw a ball, can hold chopsticks and pick up a peanut. His speech is somewhat unclear and he uses simple language using 3-5 words. He can understand instructions from the caretaker and follow them. He is happiest when playing games and watching cartoons. Occasionally he loses his temper but is calmed with verbal comfort or a snack. Walt can go to the toilet by himself. He has received some rehabilitation training but has not gone to school. He can count 1,2,3 but does not know Pinyin letters. Walt gets along well with adults and children alike. Walt is a bit introverted but becomes more lively when he is with someone he likes. Be sure to watch all Walt’s videos to see how cute he is!!
