Another TIO volunteer recently brought it to my attention that March is Trisomy Awareness Month, and she asked if the next featured child could be one who has trisomy (which includes several kinds of disorders that stem from the presence of an extra chromosome, including Down Syndrome). So I selected today’s featured child, Roberto, because this sweet boy has Down Syndrome as well as autism. Although nine-year-old Roberto is non-verbal, he is learning sign language and loves to interact with others. Pray with me that Roberto and the many other children with Down Syndrome and other trisomy disorders will find loving families to care for them!
Roberto is listed with Adopt US Kids
Roberto is a very sweet, affectionate, and fun-loving youth. He enjoys playing with cars, balls, blocks, and computer games. He also loves the outdoors and likes to swim. Roberto helps his foster father work on their property. He spends time playing with cars and trucks and also likes the cows and wants to see them often. Roberto is diagnosed with Down Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorder. He is fed primarily with a G-tube and is non-verbal. Roberto receives educational services in school to meet his educational needs. He continues to do well in school and the school assists him to accomplish goals. His teacher reports that he does well in the classroom setting, but will sometimes become frustrated. Roberto is known to be a smart youth who is very determined. He is learning sign language and is improving in communicating with his caregivers and friends. Roberto understands much of what is being said and what is going on around him. He is able to form bonds and is very sociable.
