Leroy, or LJ as he is fondly known, is a very affectionate little boy who loves the nurturing attention of the significant adults in his life. He especially likes toy cars and trucks, and any toy that has sound effects! Making trips to the park and local playground are some of LJ’s favorite outdoor activities.
For the 2016-2017 school year, LJ will begin 2nd grade in the Life Skills classroom at his elementary school. LJ, who has been nonverbal, has made exceptional academic progress this past school year! He can now sign and say every letter of the alphabet when they are presented to him on flash cards. He can also identify colors and sign several of them, and he is able to sight read some words such as ‘the,’ ‘in,’ and ‘bunny.’ In addition, LJ has made huge behavioral gains at school. He is much calmer and better able to focus.
The adoptive parent(s) who would be a really good fit for LJ will be folks who are knowledgeable and experienced with children who have delays in their communication abilities and social skills.
If you are a single parent or a couple who wants the opportunity to help LJ realize his full potential, and who has the necessary skills and knowledge to address his special needs, let us know! LJ is a delightful little boy who will be a joyful addition to a warm, supportive family who wants to love and nurture him.
