This lovable little guy is Ben! He is fascinated by anything with wheels. His face lights up whenever he sees cars passing by, and he especially likes when his foster dad takes him outside to look at a car. Ben also likes to watch cartoons – his favorites are Super Wings and Peppa Pig! He can be a little bit stubborn at times and needs an occasional reminder to share his toys, but he generally gets along very well with the other kids.
Ben’s medical condition affects his lower limbs, but he is otherwise like any other kid. He is a bright boy and he has great language skills! He speaks clearly, and he can express his needs or respond to his caregivers questions. Ben has good mobility in his upper limbs and can use a spoon or chopsticks to feed himself. Ben’s right leg is a little weaker than his left, but he can walk while holding his caregiver’s hand and practices walking with support.
