Shepard has normal limb development and delayed mental development. Upon admission, he was 6 years old and he was curious and careful. After a period of time, he understood how things worked and became more open. At the age of 7 years, he was receiving the special education in the institute. He took part in more games, study, and work activities. His self-management was improved, but his accepting ability was poor compared to other kids. At the age of 8 years, his observing ability was improved and he could understand the language. He could try to imitate simple words, but his pronunciation was not clear. At the age of 10 years, he could do simple math and finish simple intelligence games under the guidance of his teachers. At the age of 12 years, he could tell the difference between things and had his own thoughts and abilities. He likes to help the younger kids. Now he can understand directions, can express simple sentences, can count 1-10, can paint, and can memorize things slowly. He is open, ready to smile, can get along with others well, and likes playing with kids in the playground. He likes playing basketball and riding the bike. He also likes drawing and watching cartoon with his friends.
