Shannon would like you to know she loves music and TV (especially Hannah Montana, Camp Rock, High School Musical and cartoons); arts and craft projects; playing outside; and just talking. But she also wants you to know she hates cigarette smoke; is afraid of big dogs; and sometimes has problems getting along with kids her own age!
Shannon likes school because she likes her teachers and her friends. However, she finds it hard to focus on the lesson at hand and has a more difficult time learning than same-age peers. She needs a family who will make learning fun and who has the desire to work with the school system in creating the right program for her needs.
Shannon would do best in a family with no other children or in a family with an older child who is stable and has few special needs. She demands and requires extra attention, support, guidance and time, so experience, patience and consistency are needed!
