Anthony from Pennsylvania
Anthony is a sweet, shy, and playful young boy. He enjoys looking at books, using sensory toys such as Theraputty, and spending time outside. When visiting the playground, Anthony likes being pushed on the swings and feeling the gravitational force from the motion. Anthony also enjoys playing with Legos, watching television, and eating his favorite foods. Anthony is learning to interact in close proximity to his peers. They often engage in parallel play and spend time together doing different activities. Anthony prefers one-on-one engagement or being alone to complete a preferred activity. Anthony uses basic sign language and a PECS book to communicate certain wants and needs to the staff at his placement. Anthony likes to receive attention from his caregivers through high-fives, hugs, and gentle back scratches. The people in Anthony's life say he is loveable, quiet, has a great smile, and requires a structured and routine environment. Staff stated that Anthony has favorite foods, eats independently at mealtimes, and will clean up when prompted. Could you be the special family who gives Anthony his forever home?
