Tireyal was born prematurely in November 2001 with microcephaly, mental retardation, and cerebral palsy. Tireyal cannot hear, see, or speak. He uses a wheelchair.
Tireyal does make noises to communicate and almost seems to be “singing” at times. He likes to rock in his wheelchair and to suck on his fingers. He is very responsive to touch, and he laughs when tickled.
He attends school and receives special education services. Currently, he is in a group setting where all of his medical and physical needs are met, but he would thrive in a family setting that could give him the love and emotional support we all desire.
