Meet Danika. She was born August of 2011 and is said to be a tender, friendly, and smiley child. Danika’s special need is listed as moderate mentally delayed. A report from January of 2019 says the following. Danika is very curious about the surrounding environment. Her capacity to process information is still developing. She is interested in new situations, objects and people. She enjoys playing. She likes to listen to nursery rhymes and mimics the dancing movements. She readily participates in the activities and events organized in the Center. Danika has a positive and upbeat mood. Occasionally she is aggressive towards some of the younger children in her class but a specialist is working with her on that. Danika is self-confident and likes to be a leader. Although sometimes she has challenging moments, overall she is positive and nice with the kids and staff members. Danika is still learning how to play. She can be described as independent and her-own-rule-follower. She passes and catches a ball on imitation and enjoys playing a ‘hairdresser game’ with her friends. Danika partially performs self-care tasks such as feeding, correct usage of cutlery, drinking from a cup and washing up. Currently, specialists are working with her towards verbalizing her toilet needs and get rid of the diaper. She needs assistance in dressing, undressing, and putting on and off shoes. Danika’s vocabulary is improving. She is sociable, engages easily in interaction with peers and adults. She uses short sentences to verbalize her needs and preferences and follows simple rules and instructions. Be sure to watch her cute videos!
