Girl, born August 2000
Polly is a 12-year-old girl with a mild mental delay who has a developmental disorder of speech and language. She is in need of dental care due to some issues with her teeth.
Polly is relatively well-developed physically when compared to the age norms. The lack of parental care, a mother’s caress and physical and emotional contact in early infancy has affected the child’s psychological development negatively by lowering the quality of her behavioral activity.
There are no significant irregularities as regards Polly’s psychomotor development. She demonstrates satisfactory verbal, non-verbal and eye contact. Her strength is correspondent to her bodily development. The child has normal mobility and well-coordinated movements. She would benefit from active physical activities and sports. The girl has adapted well to her classmates at school. Her attention is unsteady during the classes; she has limited attention span and low stability of concentration and can easily be distracted.
