Emilia is 3.5 years old and lives in Georgetown, Texas. Emilia has a 16 year old sister with autism and a neurotypical 10 year old sister. Emilia was always a happy, loving baby but she had trouble reaching her milestones. She sat up at 9 months, crawled at 16 months and walked at 2.5 years of age. She is non-verbal. We are testing for epilepsy at this time. Emilia also suffers from GI issues. She was diagnosed with global developmental delay at 2 years of age and diagnosed with autism at 3. She received her Syngap1 diagnosis on October 20, 2021.
Emilia (Emi) loves being outdoors, hiking, swimming, camping. She likes to climb on anything and everything. Books and Cocomelon are also some favorites. We are very happy to be a part of this amazing group of people and are very hopeful for what's to come.
