Kendall is a sweet 11 year old girl! She has epilepsy and hemiplegia of the right side. Kendall is slightly delayed compared to her peers but we believe that is due to the combination of her hemiplegia and institutionalization. Her muscle strength on her left side is weaker than her right side. She can go up and down stairs on her own and take care of herself in daily life. Her file indicates that her language development has improved greatly and that she has clear pronunciation. She can sing children’s songs and clap along to the rhythm of the music! She is in the special school at the orphanage and is currently in the second grade. Contact GWCA today if you’d like to review her file!
