Emma is a cuddly, friendly 6.5-year-old girl who is living in a Child Center in Eastern Europe. She is comfortable with unfamiliar people and is not afraid to initiate contact, vocalizing specific sounds.
She was diagnosed with epilepsy and strabismus but is able to vocalize combinations of syllables and to pronounce a few words. Her caretakers report that the sounds Emma expresses vary depending on her state, needs and desires, and eventually one can recognize what she is saying and can establish a contact with her.
Emma receives developmental therapy in a group for children with special needs, and she is well-oriented in familiar and often repetitive activities. She freely interacts with familiar children and is well accepted among her peers.
