Meet Jamisen! This tall, curious 15-year-old boy loves to be on the move. He frequently has a smile on his face as he is outside swinging, playing in the yard and going for walks with his caregivers. When he’s not outside running around he loves to curl up on the couch with his tablet to watch Toy Story or cooking videos on YouTube.
Jamisen loves cartoons, Disney movies, matchbox cars, and action figures. Doing puzzle games and listening to music are also favorites on his tablet. Jamisen does well in community outings with support from his caregiver. Jamisen is healthy and has a playful and happy personality.
Jamisen would do best in a two-parent family with a high level of energy and commitment to serving his needs. Jamisen needs a high level of supervision, consistency, and nurturing. A family will need to have access to appropriate services to meet his additional developmental and educational needs.
Jamisen needs a family who is willing to be lifelong advocates for services and supports for him. Jamisen would do best in a family where he is the youngest or an only child and parents who have ample time to spend with him.
Jamisen’s team hopes to find permanency for him through either adoption or guardianship while he remains living in a residential setting.
