Student of the Week

As many of you know Bennett attends a preschool program at our local Children's Treatment Centre. Every week a different child is chosen to be the "PATH Student of the Week". This week was Bennett's turn.
We are pleased to introduce PATH Student of the Week, Bennett.
Bennett is a very social young man who enjoys learning new things. He is now learning how to make new sounds and is motivated to try new words. Bennett uses his communication book and his Minimo device very well to express what he wants and to share his ideas.
In Occupational Therapy, Bennett is now able to snip paper using his first Fiskar scissors. We are very proud of Bennett as he uses both hands to play with toys and is able to pull a zipper up and down by himself with just a little bit of help. Bennett is starting to make zip and zoom lines.
Bennett loves to explore all of his surroundings. He readily participates in gross motor activities, both in the classroom and the gym. He can walk in all directions and can climb up and down the stairs. Bennett enjoys kicking a ball and willingly participates in riding a tricycle.
It's a pleasure to have Bennett in our Preschool Program. He is always smiling and loves to do crafts!

Yay Bennett! Though for someone who's always smiling (and I know he is) that's a pretty serious picture he took! And then again, those scholarly-types take these awards very seriously....

How wonderful to see such accomplishments for our dear Bennett. I think he should get the "Super" Student of the Week - at least in our estimation!

Congratulations Bennett! Although I am not sure who the young man in the picture is - that cannot be little Bennett, can it?

He is getting so big & I love hearing about all of his accomplishments
