Background Information

Relevant Medical/Diagnostic Information:

Simon has been diagnosed with a global developmental delay, of unknown origin.

Medical report on file.

He presents with severe delays in all areas of adaptive functioning, with the greatest delay in the communication and social domains.

The biggest concern is that Simon is not aware of his environment and places himself in a number of dangerous situations. The latest incident occurred when Simon left the school during the middle of the school day and wandered onto the road.

He has had seizures, but currently these are under control without medication.

Other Information:

Language Spoken: English

Agencies Involved: Children’s Special Services

School History (from pertinent Cumulative File Information):

Simon is in his 6th year of school, having spent 2 years in Kindergarten (1 year half-time, 1 year full time). To date he has required Teaching Assistant support in the school, to assist with his individualized programming and address safety needs.

Domain: Social

Current Level of Performance:

Simon greets people inconsistently. He is echolaic, and will repeat words and phrases he has heard. He needs a verbal cue to make eye contact when speaking to others. Simon is interested in what others are doing, but will not approach a peer to initiate play. He will play with peers for approximately 3-5 minutes but he has difficulty keeping an interaction going.

Student Specific Outcomes:

  1. Simon will greet teachers and classmates (by looking at the speaker and verbalizing “hello”) with 90% accuracy in 4 settings by the end of June.
  2. Simon will play with peers from his circle of friends at school for 15 minutes over five consecutive days by the end of June.

Domain: Motor

Current Level of Performance:

Simon demonstrates average ability in gross motor skills, as noted in formal testing (see P.T./OT report June 1998)

His greatest area of concern is in following directions and visually attending to an activity during gross motor play. In the fine motor area, Simon is right-hand dominant and demonstrates a mature grasp pattern with utensils, i.e. pencil, scissors and paint brush. He has below average ability with activities that require eye hand coordination or bilateral coordination. He is able to match all letters of the alphabet, using both upper and lower case. He does not identify any letters upon request. He is only able to print the following letters of the alphabet; a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, m, n, o, s, t,. He does not stay on the line (baseline samples on file), and does not visually attend to his work. Simon enjoys puzzles and demonstrates average ability in this area. He is quite interested in the computer and enjoys concrete question/answer type programs.

Student Specific Outcome:
Simon will print all of the letters of the alphabet, demonstrating satisfactory formation (the identity of each letter should be obvious), on 9/ 10 samples by the end of June.
