young woman sitting at table and smiling

Guaranteed to make you smile and laugh, is how her worker and peers describes Aliyah! Aliyah is a young lady that is full of energy and commands a room. Aliyah is encouraging and likes to make sure that those around her are having as much fun as possible. Aliyah is very charming and funny and is able to express her needs to adults and peers.

Aliyah enjoys listening to music, spending time talking on the phone with her sibling, and going on outings; especially trips to McDonald’s. She also enjoys playing with her dolls, art activities, and telling funny stories. Aliyah is very attentive to her dolls and loves to share the story behind each one. She can often be found doing their hair and getting them dressed for whatever occasion.

The family who accepts Aliyah into their home should be patient and consistent. The family should also have the desire to help Aliyah meet her true potential. Aliyah also needs a family who is willing to maintain contact with extended family members.
