He loves to play outside but he has allergies so there are times he has to stay inside. Tyler loves video games. He likes to play Temple Run on his tablet. If he could plan a day all about him, he would most enjoy playing with the iPad, having a playdate with his sister while they play with toys. He is currently enrolled in a school at a residential facility where he has a very small class size and several adults in the room. He does have an IEP specifically for behaviors. He is otherwise on grade level.

Tyler loves to hug. He loves his sister, and enjoys playing all types of games…he’s especially good with puzzles. Tyler & Mackenzie need a two parent home who is willing to adopt both children. They need to be the only two children in the home. The couple needs to be in good physical health with high stamina and patience in order to meet the children’s challenging behavioral needs. The family would need to have structure and the ability to provide a calm environment. The family will need to be able to work with a behavioral specialist for Tyler in order for him to learn how to best manage his behaviors.

Mackenzie and Tyler both love affection in the form of hugs and kisses. They also like to sit in your lap or up close to you. They like to hold hands and frequently give their caretakers hugs for no reason.
