Eliana* is a friendly and smiley tiny girl who was born with a rare chromosomal disorder leaving her with complex intellectual and developmental disabilities and stunted growth. At 12, she is the height of a 4-year-old.
Eliana arrived at ALEH as a baby, and her sweetness and charm has made her one of our most beloved children ever since. Although she cannot speak, she uses facial expressions and gestures to communicate her needs and feelings. She thrives on attention and loves her friends and family, who come to visit often. She particularly enjoys the multisensory stimulation, music and water activities which are part and parcel of her enhanced therapy program. With the help of customized computer programs, Eliana is learning auxiliary communication techniques.
YOUR support will help Eliana grow to her fullest capabilities and achieve quality of life.
