Parker was born with 4th degree prematurity in March 2008. He is blind due to retinopathy of prematurity.  Parker has diffuse muscle hypotrophy and protein calorie malnutrition.  His hernia was surgically repaired in infancy and his heart defect closed itself. Parker walks independently in familiar environments and actively uses his other senses to explore.  He orients himself in the direction of familiar voices and enjoys one on one activities and play with adults.  Parker speaks in single words, understands instructions, and can feed himself. Parker attends a school for visually impaired children where he is well adjusted and oriented though it can be difficult to attract his interest in educational activities due to his limited attention span and struggle to concentrate. He gets along with other children. Parker is a relatively calm and adaptive child who will need ongoing support from a loving family.
