Benson is a beautiful little boy! Benson was said to be a timid little guy who was a little scared of the dark. A nightlight of some sort is helpful for him when it comes to sleeping. At the time Benson’s file was prepared, his motor skills were noted to be delayed. All that said, he has made huge gains over time! Benson is now much more outgoing and he smiles regularly. He always giggles when you tickle his stomach and wrist. He puts his face close to the caretaker’s face when he is cuddled. Benson is so adored! He has also made improvement with his motor abilities. Benson can now roll over and he plays very well independently. He loves playing with toy cars the most and will sometimes take others’ toys. Benson has received therapy and can now also sit on his own. He has strong imitation skills. He has learned a lot and can now imitate words and wave goodbye to people. He also claps his hands to welcome and congratulate others. Benson loves to listen to and dance to music! He is very expressive with his hands.
