Jadaisa T., born September 2001, is 15 years old and is in the 9th grade. Jadaisa has a developmental disability so she presents as much younger than her stated age. She also has a seizure disorder that is managed well with medication. Jadaisa loves to receive attention and enjoys trips to the park. She also enjoys listening to music, dancing, playing on her iPad, and watching Barney videos. Her favorite foods are hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries, and Chinese food.
Jadaisa receives special education services and has an IEP. She has learned to communicate more effectively rather than displaying acting out behaviors, such as banging her head, as a way to express her feelings.
Jadaisa has learning and intellectual challenges that will require a loving and committed family. She will need 24 hour care for the remainder of her life, as she will not be able to live independently. Jadaisa's ideal family would be a two parent home or a single female parent as she seems to respond better to women. There is no preference as to whether or not there are other children in the home.
