Great improvement is seen in Thomas’ gross motor skills – he now moves in the space independently, sits on a chair and also walks up and down the stairs independently.
Thomas likes receiving adults’ attention and he rejoices and laughs at loud when an adult is tickling him.
Thomas has spent all of his life in institutions so far. He is living in his current group home since May 2016 and the specialists, working there report that he has achieved an amazing progress for a little over an year there. They believe that Thomas has a lot of potential and would progress much further if provided with enough individual attention and loving and caring family environment.
