He has a very strong need for communication, is friendly, accepting, happy with all people and very attached to those who reciprocate. His mood is mostly good and he is described as cheerful and positive. He has lived in a community foster home since 3/21. Jacob spends the day attending nursery school/kindergarten since 3/21. He has become much more independent in kindergarten and is also more active in the group although he usually plays alone. He likes to watch the children and throw toys to make a sound. In kindergarten, he responds to gestures, facial expressions and pictures. He interacts easily with new adults and children. Jacob walks independently, although he cannot coordinate his muscles at will, and keeps his balance when walking. He gets tired if he has to walk more. He is fed by a member of staff at the kindergarten, does not eat on his own, can hold a bottle, cannot yet drink from a cup but is learning to do so. Jacob reacts positively to all children and reacts almost the same way to adults. He received early rehabilitation services from March – August. The rehabilitation was comprehensive: psychological counseling and developmental assessment using DISC methodology, speech therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, music therapy, and team discussions on the child’s situation. According to the doctors, the boy is adapting quickly to his new environment, making brief eye contact, smiling, and being active. He makes sounds but does not form words, has difficulty understanding speech and no hearing impairment has been detected. Jacob’s attention span is short and he often throws things. He needs continuous motivation to continue the activities he has started. He walks independently with a wide stance but does not yet climb stairs. His language and motor development is delayed. Jacob is interested in his surroundings and toys and puts everything in his mouth.
