Meet 17-year- old Anthony! He can come across as shy at first, but once he gets talking he doesn’t stop! He enjoys crocheting, yo-yos, basketball, and origami. Anthony enjoys learning about weather- particularly storms and is a sports car aficionado. He loves listening to music, especially rap artists such as Eminem and Cassidy. Anthony has been described by others as active, helpful, caring, curious, intelligent, and loving. He describes himself as funny, goofy, and energetic.
Anthony is in the 10 th grade. He currently has an IEP in place. His favorite subjects include math and science. He can be an attentive student who is eager to learn new things. He has wanted to be a storm chaser since he was very young and hopes his math and science skills will help make his dreams come true.
Anthony needs a one- or two-parent family with no other children. He needs a strong male role model who will spend quality time with him. Structure, consistency, and clear rules and boundaries will help Anthony succeed. A family selected for Anthony may need to participate in family therapy and should be educated about Anthony’s strengths and needs and willing to try different techniques to help him succeed.
