MEET Joshua
Joshua is a sweet and loving boy; he can win over your heart with his smile. Although he is autistic and non-verbal, he is making great strides communicating through a picture book to have his basic desires met. Joshua has also made progress using “yes” and “no” responses. Joshua is very sociable, loves hugs, and gets along well with other children. He will, at times, sit and play with peers with blocks or color a coloring book. Sensory activities, arts and crafts, riding a tricycle, and bouncing on an exercise ball are some of his favorite things. Joshua was surrounded by animals when he lived with his birth family, so he is used to having pets in the home. Joshua will do best with a family who can continue to teach him communication skills and gain independent living skills. Joshua is not legally free, however when a permanent resource is identified the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
