Look at what Matthew has been able to do recently! He can walk up and down a single 5-inch high step all by himself - a demonstration of good motor control, coordination, leg strength, and balance. He usually needs me to hold one or both of his hands to navigate a step. He surprised me as I was taking photos one afternoon and I managed to capture the moment through my lens.
His newest ability is also featured at Windmills and Tulips, where inspiring individuals with Down syndrome are spotlighted in "T21 Abilities Can Do Monday".
