Background Information

Developmental History

Gage lives with his mother, infant brother, grandparents, three aunts, one uncle, and his
infant cousin. Gage’s parents are divorced and although we are not sure of the custody
rights, his mother has told us that Gage goes to visit his dad. He has been able to meet all
developmental milestones in the cognitive, social/emotional, and adaptive domains. His
mom spent a couple of years away from Gage, and he spent the time with his
grandparents. During this time, he met no communication milestones. The family reports
that it was only after his mother came back that he started to talk to develop his
communication skills.

Gage is currently undergoing testing to see if he can be diagnosed with autism. Gage’s
mom says that he has IBS but other than that, has had no other serious medical
conditions. Gage has no documented hearing or vision issues, he is not on any current
medication, and has had no relevant medical procedures.
