Montgomery’s physical development is normal for his age. His psychomotor development does not correspond to his age.

He maintains adequate eye contact and recognizes familiar people from strangers. His abstract thinking does not correspond to his age and he lacks concentration. He has difficulties in reproducing words and concepts. His memory is short-termed and he has difficulties in storing information related to quantity and time.
Montgomery’s emotional development does not correspond to his age as he has a low degree of emotional intellect. No aggression is observed in his behavior. His frustration level is average having in mind that he is a teenager. Sometimes affected behavior is observed when he is unable to complete a task and often he just refuses to complete a given activity. Montgomery has problems with articulation and has poor vocabulary. He communicates with his peers and adults via verbal and non-verbal means of communication. He prefers to play individually, but he is also willing to take part in group activities and maintains good relationships with his peers and the staff. He seeks emotional warmth and makes physical contact with the others – taking somebody by the hand and hugging. His speech is hard to understand – he uses short and simple sentences that are badly constructed. Montgomery is interested in creative activities – modeling and drawing. He is motivated and willing to acquire everyday self-service skills.
