Jeffrey :: Autism, seizure disorder, Tourette’s syndrome
Meet Jeffrey! Jeffery has a very kind and gentle spirit. He is the helper of the family and such a loving boy. Jeffrey was welcomed into an amazing family who are dedicated to their passion for education and advocacy of special needs and transracial adoption (He is our other Sweetie Lila’s big brother).
Jeffrey has been diagnosed with mild/moderate autism. He has a seizure disorder and takes medication to help keep his seizures under control. Jeffrey also has Tourette’s syndrome. Tourette’s syndrome involves uncontrollable repetitive movements or unwanted sounds (also known as tics), such as repeatedly blinking the eyes, shrugging shoulders, or blurting out offensive words.
Jeffrey was a joy to photograph, he lead Carrie Anne around the park and showed her the art of tree climbing.
