Meet a Candy Woman Who Loves Being Outdoor
Araya is a cute, lovable and playful 14 year old. She thrives on personal attention and loves to be outside when the weather is nice. Araya especially enjoys cycling, swimming, walking and playing on the swings in the playground. Her favorite foods are pasta, cinnamon rolls and beef dried meat.
It is very important for Araya to feel cared for. She values consistent caregivers who receive attention, affection, and are clean. When she feels cared for and receives warmth and kindness from others, she shows affection in return.
Sensory stimulation is also important to Araya. She finds comfort and joy in her weighted blanket, swings in the park, swims and plays with things with interesting textures. When she spends time with Lensa, her kid-specific recruiter, she loves getting her nails and hair done.
Araya is smart, strong-willed and resilient. You can’t underestimate their skills and their ability to learn new things!
Since Araya is nonverbal, it is important that her potential parents are patient and open to learning different types of communication styles. “Because of her needs,” says Lensa, “Araya will need personal supervision.” She will also need parents willing to learn how to support her needs and instill patience, gentle care, and understanding. “
Araya currently uses a communication device and knows a sign language. She is smart, strong-willed and resilient. You can’t underestimate their skills and their ability to learn new things!
