The workers at the orphanage say his intellectual development is above average. Beau likes to draw and play with puzzles. Beau has cerebral palsy and has walked with a spastic paraparetic gait, but there is news that Beau had surgery on his legs in February and should, according to doctors, be able to walk almost normally with special orthopedic shoes.
