Through our Virtual Superkids program we were able to meet Kellet over Zoom recently. We are excited to share updates from this meeting!
Kellet recently turned 8. He describes himself as someone who wants to help when others fall down. He likes to pretend he is Ultraman, but he also likes helping his foster mother with chores such as sweeping and washing the floors.
He enjoys playing outside doing activities such as riding his bike, playing hide-and-seek, and playing basketball. Kellet said he doesn’t like being bored, apparently sitting in traffic was fresh on his mind after his 2 hour ride to get to the meeting location!
Kellet likes to go to McDonald’s where he likes all of the food, but he says he likes ice cream more than he likes fried chicken. Other foods he enjoys are watermelon and stinky tofu. His least favorite food is eggplant.
His file indicates that he has ADHD, but that it is currently stable. Kellet has good gross and fine motor skills. He can run, jump, and do jumping jacks. He drew us a detailed picture of Ultraman that he was very proud of.
Kellet is in second grade. He enjoys school. When asked what his least favorite subject was he said he doesn’t have one, he likes all of the subjects. But he does have a favorite: Life Skills class. He did double digit addition facts for us with ease.
Kellet is a little shy and quiet at first, but warms up quickly and makes good eye contact. He is able to answer questions and engage in conversation with adults. Throughout the Virtual Superkids call he was cooperative, attentive, and eager to please. Our team noted no significant delays or concerns during the time spent with him.
