Regina was abandoned at the Children’s Welfare Institute in 2009, when she was approximately 5 years old.
After admission she adapted to the group life quickly. She likes being praised, can get alone well with caretaker and children, sometimes can care younger brothers and sisters and can manage her life.
In late 2010 she entered preschool class. We design and make some projects for her. We find she is interested with colorful paper, she takes the colorful paper to roll and unfold repeatedly. She learns to use scissor to cut paper. She likes painting, use colorful pens to draw circles on balloon. She can put the toy blocks of the same color together which makes her can recognize color and make her fingers more flexible. Regina has had a great change in the preschool class, from an autistic child she grows up into a polite and helpful child.
After training (blow the balloon, tongue exercise and read Pinyin), she can speak “wo, wawa, mama, yao, buyao, hao”, can write some numbers and simple characters. Her limb ability is improved, she can ride a bike, can swing, can sit on the seesaw, recently he loves riding children’s bike. Once upon a time, they are singing together, she feel the student near her does not sing well and tells to stop singing. At the same time she is helpful boy, she can do what she can, can help the teacher to clean the classroom and pick up the toys together; in the dormitory she can help to fold the clothes. In the picnic, she can pull child’s hand positively and can have a bag with food on her back. Through picnic and community activity, she broads her vision and improves her sociability.
