    he is increasing his communication and physical development. Shawn,
    at times, when unhappy may become loud and have a tantrum. He is
    on medication to help him decrease these negative behaviors, but can
    generally be redirected with positive activities. Shawn does well with
    one-on-one attention from adults and in situations where his choices
    are limited. He has significant developmental delays and needs a fam-
    ily who is willing to love and accept him as he is.
