Dotty was born in early 2012 and has been diagnosed with West Syndrome, epilepsy, bilateral atrophy of the optic nerve, facial anomalies, disorder of oligosaccharide metabolism, and severely delayed development.
Dotty does not yet have stable head control, but turns her head toward sounds and is able to roll from back to belly. She cannot sit, stand, crawl or walk. She is not potty-trained, does not drink from a cup and eats pureed foods from a spoon with help. While Dotty recognizes an adult's tone of voice and smiles when jested or addressed gently, she does not appear to understand the speech of others. She is nonverbal, but produces random sounds. Dotty has low interest in toys though may briefly hold them when given to her. Dotty is entirely dependent on the care of others. Her development corresponds to that of a four month-old child.
