Cute little Wyatt is a tiny boy with a mouthful of diagnoses.  He has concomitant exotropia of both eyes, also known as strabismus. His intelligence is listed as mildy low, but his DQ(developmental quotient) is normal.  He also has hypogenesis of the lobi frontalis, also known as under-development of the frontal lobe of the brain.  His intellectual development is not affected by this diagnosis. His heart and lungs are healthy. He is extremely cute, and the caregivers love him very much. Here is what they had to say about Wyatt:

He can go up stairs and walk while pushing a stroller; he can play with toys and can hold things.  He can call mother and wave goodbye. He can imitate others’ moves, and is interested in new things…such as when he sees an airplane in the air he would point at it with his fingers.  He is extroverted and active.  He loves to smile and listen to music. He ignores strangers and refuses to be held by them. If he has some food in hand, he would even ignore caregivers who call him–he is afraid that his friends would come and take his food away. He can accept food he has never had.

Little Wyatt could use a forever family, where he can try lots of new foods…and where he will never need to worry about losing his “things” ever again.

  1. It sounds like Wyatt is a special kid. Advancements in the technology might help to cope with visual disability. This tiny but powerful camera can read texts, identify objects and recognize faces to help people who are visually impaired. Especially, students with visual impairments can use this wearable assistive device to achieve increased independence and gain confidence.
