Behavior Asilomar: TM - Treatable-Manageable

Recommendations:: No children (under 13)

Recommendations comments:: No children: Due to how uncomfortable Star is currently with touch and novel stimuli, we feel that an adult-only home would be most beneficial at this time.

Potential challenges: : Fearful

Potential challenges comments:: Fearful: Star has shown high levels of fear in the care center in each interaction, though she manages her stress well and has not escalated to warning signs. She needs a very slow approach and the ability to warm up to new people and new environments at her own pace. Star should be permitted to initiate interactions and solicit attention when she feels comfortable, rather than being forced to interact.
