Timothy recognizes familiar voices, smiling and laughing when others talk to him or when he hears musical toys. Timothy can keep his head upright when held in a caregivers arms and spends most of the day in a specialized chair. He can hold a toy that is placed in his hand but he does not manipulate or play with it. Timothy does not appear to understand speech and is likely unable to see. Calm and cheerful Timothy is bottle fed and sleeps well. He receives therapy for increased muscle tone in his arms and legs.
Timothy needs dedicated care and a nurturing family who is capable of handling his multiple needs.
