Alex, born in 2007, is a social and engaging teen. He has blue eyes, brown hair, and a very endearing smile. Nurturing, compassionate and energetic, he has a sunny disposition, and shows enthusiasm for the many activities he enjoys! These include playing hockey, building anything with Lego, being outdoors looking at bugs or plants, and if he is down by the river, he loves throwing rocks. Alex likes playing video games or board games, and baking. He is an avid Harry Potter fan and loves having those books read to him. Although he can present as shy at first, once he feels more comfortable, his silly and playful side comes out! He works hard to behave well, and is most successful when he is given encouragement and patience.
Alex attends a specialized school program, with other children who require additional support in meeting their learning and behavioral goals. Some of his favourite subjects at school are art and science. He does well when provided one on one support in the classroom to manage his energy, focus on his learning, and interact positively with his peers. Alex is also finding new confidence in himself when he is given leadership opportunities.
An active two parent or single parent home with either no children, or with children older than Alex, would be the best fit for him. The most suitable family would also be able to provide him with structure, supervision, nurturance, and an abundant appreciation for the gifts he brings. Assisting Alex in maintaining connection with his sisters, and ensuring he is able to access specialized services now and in the future will be essential.
