About the Siblings
Arthur and Tyler are twins who are eager for belonging! These two are definitely individuals and not defined by their twin status. Arthur is into lowriders, sports, rap, and myriad other interests. When you get Arthur engaged in a conversation about one of these subjects, he really comes alive! Arthur would like to go to technical school after he finishes high school; he's interested in auto mechanics and culinary arts. In contrast, Tyler loves One Direction, Justin Bieber, and talking about teenager stuff. Tyler is sweet and gentle-natured. He's interested in becoming more independent; Tyler would love to get his driver's license and get a job at his favorite clothing retail store. Overall, both brothers are easy-going and tend to be pretty mellow.
Arthur and Tyler haven’t lived with each other for a while and aren’t sure about living in the same family. However, we believe siblings need to stay close and would love to find one family for both boys.
The best family for Arthur and Tyler will have a good understanding of the needs of teens who have developmental delays. The boys are able to be most successful at school and in a family when they have good structure, a consistent, positive daily routine, and highly attentive supervision. Having a caring adult nearby to redirect them and help them stay on track is really important. Because of their desire for belonging, the boys need support learning about choosing friends and guarding their personal boundaries. A high level of supervision and frequent prompts and redirection will help keep them focused and safe. The guys are proud of their teenager status (especially Tyler) and it works well to point out the maturity and responsibility of being a teenager. Another tactic that works with the boys is playful humor and joking around.
The boys both participate in special education programs at school. A social child, Arthur likes to participate in groups at school and enjoys spending time at the local community center. He is proud of how many friends he has and how he treats them. Tyler loves high school and is proud to be a part of his student body. He likes spending time with his friends and doing typical “teenager stuff.”
Arthur and Tyler’s social worker looks forward to talking with experienced parents who have the skills and desire to help the boys reach their full potential. She especially wants to hear from prospective adoptive parents who want to learn more about the boys’ current individual special needs and the level of family, educational/vocational, and community supports they will most likely need to function well in adulthood. What is certain is that Arthur and Tyler’s family/families will love having kids who are so interested and excited to have new experiences and to be a part of a family!
