He is several grade levels behind in reading, writing, and math skills. Tyrone is currently in a residential treatment facility. While there, he has been verbally and physically aggressive at times, but he is working very hard with his therapist to improve these behaviors.
Tyrone would benefit from a family that is able to provide him constant supervision. He has had incidents of running away in the past, as well as stealing. It’s important for Tyrone to be in a family that would provide structure, but also be nurturing and patient with him at the same time and allow him to display affection in his own way at his own time. Tyrone will require time to build genuine trust in others. He would also benefit from a family who would help him maintain a connection to his siblings who have been adopted by another family.
Tyrone has talked about being adopted and would like to be placed with a family the he can find permanence with. He would like to live in the country as he associates the city with crime and danger. Will you be the family to help him in this goal?
