Description: *This child was formerly on the Shared List*

From Jan 2013:

Tessa’s hand movement is very good and she can look at her hands and she can grab things like normal. She can do very fine movements and her left and right hand can turn things in them and she can already use a small spoon to eat food with. She eats in a very sweet manner, mouthful by mouthful. The child has delayed motor development but she can crawl, she can turn her body over and she can walk like normal. She walks slowly and both of her feet can’t jump off the ground at the same time nor jump in turn. Tessa’s language ability is behind. She can only call out, ba ba, ma ma and other simple words. Her vision is very normal and she can see things very far away. Tessa really likes to play together with everyone especially the little children she often sees. She is very understanding and when she sees an elderly person she will call out, “nai nai” (grandma) and she is an especially likeable little girl. Tessa is a very cute little girl who is quiet and likes to play by herself. When she is with other little children, she will never quarrel with them just like a fair maiden. She is a bit scared and when she sees someone she’s not acquainted with, she will express she is a bit shy. The child is very interested in music and when she hears music, she will move and sway her body. She likes to watch TV and she is very interested in cell phones and picture books.
