Herbie’s physical development is poorer than those of peers, and he has normal intelligence. At the age of 2years, he can stand alone, can walk alone, can imitate adult doing, such as clap hands and wave hands. At the age of 2.5years, he was sent to a foster family; he can sit on the small chair, and can squat down and stand up again; he can state out the animal's name by the animal's voice(such as cow's voice, moo moo); he plays games with children, such as push the car and build the blocks. At the age of 3years, he can run slowly; he often falls down when walking and can't walk steadily(maybe be related with the mass on his thoracolumbar); he can take off shoes and socks, and can be cooperative when put on clothes; he can have a meal with the spoon. Now he is nice; when we go to visit him in the foster family, he is very warm, and would hold the aunt's hands, and says hello to her; he plays in the sands with children, doing it in order; he shovels the sand, takes the sand into the container and takes them out of the container, pushes the sand car, and he plays happily very much. He has strong imitation, and learns the salute, blinking eyes and nodding his head; he can take off simple clothes, can say dad and mom and aunt, can say I want to eat. We found that he is active and cute; Everyone likes him very much.
