This is Alan.
He is a 16-year-old boy.
Alan is a master at origami art. He enjoys swimming, drawing, and doing magic tricks. He is helpful and always willing to lend a hand. Alan’s favorite subject in school is literature; he enjoys reading science fiction. Alan is also a musically talented guitar player. In the future, Alan would like to join the US Air Force. Alan’s outgoing personality allows him to engage better with adults, than with children.
Alan will need continued support to assist in processing anger, grief, and aggression. Alan should be the only child in his forever home. His parents will need to have experience with children who have emotional and behavioral needs, an ability to set clear boundaries and give specific, direct instructions, and strong parenting skills. His parents will need flexibility to attend counseling and possibly school meetings to continue being supportive with Alan’s needs.
