Freydís

Freydís is a very cheerful 3 year old girl. In some ways she is just like every other little girl out there. Shes engaging and is constantly starting conversations with just about everybody. She curiously ask people she meets what they are doing and about their name.

Freydís needs lots of attention. She craves companionship constantly and is rarely content just on her own. She is ok with playing with children her age but definetly prefers to play with older children, or best of all have some grown ups that are willing to cater to all her needs.

She has a very good humour and is constantly teasing everybody around her. She finds herself to be very funny and is ready to go to great lengths to get people around her to laugh. It can be quite challenging to teach Freydís proper ways to behave. She has very short attention span and it is neccessary to repeat everything you want her learn. She is stubborn and has a good memory and never takes no for an answer.

Williams syndrome is a developmental disorder that affects many parts of the body. This condition is characterized by mild to moderate intellectual disability or learning problems, unique personality characteristics, distinctive facial features, and heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) problems.

People with Williams syndrome typically have difficulty with visual-spatial tasks such as drawing and assembling puzzles, but they tend to do well on tasks that involve spoken language, music, and learning by repetition (rote memorization). Affected individuals have outgoing, engaging personalities and tend to take an extreme interest in other people.
