Male, 4 yrs

Child’s Story: 

Atlas is a lovely, easygoing kid who loves music. He does not walk/crawl/sit independently/feed himself/hold onto or explore objects/talk/communicate in any systematic way. He does, however, have a huge smile and a contagious laugh. He certainly is a pleasure to be around.

Hobbies:

Atlas loves listening to music. He also loves playing music (ie. banging on the piano or drums). Atlas enjoys being outdoors and being stimulated by different sounds.

Needs:

Shoes that fit over his AFOs (Atlas’s shoes must be wide enough to fit over his AFOs); Adaptive clothing; Bodysuit; Adaptive Pants; Adaptive scissors (so he can participate more fully in craft activities and his Pre-K curriculum); Diapers Size 5

Unscented Wipes; Hair care including shampoo/conditioner. Atlas has very, very curly hair and the Mixed Chicks hair care line works well for his mixed, curly hair (links below)

Wants:
1. A family membership for Atlanta Zoo ($139.00) (walking around and hearing/seeing the different animals would be stimulating for him); A fish tank for home  (I would get GloFish since they are colorful and bright – Atlas has a cortical visual impairment, so the motion and brightness of the fish would be perfect for him)
