Scott is a great kiddo who has an infectious funny personality. Once you meet him, you can't help but to fall in love with him. If you like sports Scott is the kid for you! He plays in all of the traditional sports year round with his favorites being basketball and soccer. He just started a bowling league as well. He also likes to watch football.
While he is not doing sports Scott enjoys playing outside with neighborhood kids, picking blackberries, riding his bike, playing video games, swimming, riding the public bus, legos, hot wheels, cooking, drawing, and going to the dollar store to spend his allowance and reward money.
Scott has been in the same home for over almost 4 years. He is doing well in this home. Rewards and incentives work great with Scott!
When Scott entered care he was considered “severely medically fragile” and had two heart surgeries. Since being in care, he has had access to proper medical treatment, and he is doing VERY well. His doctor has recently said that he is the healthiest that he has ever been. He sees a cardiologist every 9 months, and his regular doctor every other month for medication checks.
Developmentally, Scott will always be behind, but he is making progress. He is currently in the 6th grade and he is at the 2-3 grade level in most subjects. He will need some kind of care life long, but the good news is that he would qualify for DD services as an adult and they could help out with getting him housing and employment. He would do great in customer service with his charming personality.
He is going to need a family that is going to be able to keep him active in the sports he loves and have a pretty consistent routine. They will need to know about IEP’s and advocate for him at school, and know how to navigate the DD services. He does well with other children and pets.
Scott is a charming and very personable young man who is definately worth the extra supports he needs!
