  2. 2. Health History Bebie was born a normal child. She doesn’t have any illness or allergies during childbirth. The only difference with her was she doesn’t know how to suck milk from her mother’s breast. She has gone to the hospital for medical check-up only once but she had never been hospitalized for any other illness aside from her condition right now. Her family noticed that she has a disability when she was 4 yrs. Old. They noticed the Bebie has a hard time in walking uprightly and can’t speak clearly unlike the normal child at her age. She was 5 yrs. Old then when she started to walk. She was first exposed to school when she was 6 yrs. Old at Leliani Foundation, Gusa, CDO. At present, she is enrolled at Bugo Day Care Center enjoying some special services given by the school. The school provides basic education for Bebie such as teaching her how to read, write letters and numbers, identify colors, shapes, and etc. the school also helps Bebie’s social development through the games they play. Bebie sleeps at around 8:00 pm and wakes up at around 5:00 am. Before she sleeps at night, she urinates first. She doesn’t practice any afternoon nap but she sleeps straight during night. She already knew how to eat independently. Because of her condition, it takes her more time to finish eating her meals. She eats her meals whenever the food is already available. She already knew how to urinate alone, to take a bath and how to dispose her waste but still not capable of washing after disposing. Her main medical concern is her way of walking. She has hard time in walking uprightly because there are abnormalities in the muscles and bones of her lower extremities. This is because she has a cerebral palsy. 2

Her older sibling died at the age of 6 months old. Her younger brother is with her mother. Her primary caregiver is her grandmother, which took every possible way just to take care of her. She is closer to her father and to her brother. Her grandmother is closest to her because her grandmother is her primary caregiver. Her family accepted her in their family despite her condition. Her grandmother and her father were treating her as a blessing in the family. She always imitates what the other family members are doing. Imitating things like folding clothes, preparing meals, washing dirty clothes and hanging washed clothes in the clothesline. Her grandmother wants her to be educated so that despite her disability/condition, she will know the things needed in her life. Their house is located along the foot of a mountain at Bugo. Trees surround it and the air is fresh. The neighborhood of Bebie is warm and friendly. They don’t tease Her for her condition. The father of Bebie is a laborer and her grandmother is just a housewife. 3

  17. 17. RECOMMENDATIONS Summative Evaluation Merlyn was born normal. She doesn’t have any illnesses or allergies during childbirth. Her family noticed that she has a disability when she was 4 yrs. Old. She started walking when she was 5 yrs. Old but she was having difficulty in walking straight. She was first exposed to school when she was 6 yrs. Old at Leliani Foundation, Gusa, Cagayan de Oro City. Merlyn’s educational concern is to continue attending classes at the Day Care Center. She needs to improve her fine motor skills and the quality of her speech. She cannot write well and she cannot speak well. According to the sped teacher, a physician diagnosed Merlyn to have a cerebral palsy. 1
  18. 18. Placement Options Teaching objectives of the teacher must be based on her needs. That is, Merlyn should be able to write her name, she must be able to say words clearly, and she must also be able to improve her fine motor skills. The learning environment of Merlyn should be conducive for special children to learn. Since the classroom where Merlyn is currently studying is not really for special children, it is recommended that they must be given a separate classroom exclusive only for special children. The classroom should consist of educational/instructional materials suitable for special children and with their disabilities. The class size should compose of less than ten students, one sped teacher and one shadow teacher. There should be a resource room available in the school. This resource room is important because it is where the child will be place whenever s/he is having tantrums. There should be one shadow teacher to support the sped teacher in handling the class. In a class, there should be follow-up activities for each lesson. 1
  19. 19. Specific Recommendations Behavior Merlyn should practice neatness of work and work area. She needs to learn to comply to oral instructions and needs to complete a task before beginning another. Giving her instructions step by step can do this. Physical/Motor Merlyn should develop her fine motor skills as writing, lacing, folding and pulling. In her gross motor skills, she needs to improve her coordination and balance for going up and down the stairs and her coordination and balance for transferring. Merlyn should do physical exercises for her to execute those things. Exercises like arm and finger exercise, knee bending and walking in place can be done. Communication/Social Merlyn should know how to communicate feelings and thoughts. She should also know how to speak clearly and coherently. Speech therapists could be of great help to Merlyn but since the family cant afford to hire such therapists because of financial problems, her teacher could be a good substitute for it. Since her teacher is a sped teacher, she probably has some background information about children with speech problems. Cognitive/Readiness Merlyn should learn how to arrange items/ objects in series and to imitate patterns. She should learn how to read simple words. This could be achieved by giving her activities that could enhance cognitive skills. The teacher should also be aware of the activities she will give to Merlyn that will suit to Merlyn’s Problem. 1
  20. 20. Self-care Merlyn should learn how to eat using fork. She also need to learn how to brush/comb her hair and how to trim finger/toe nails. Merlyn should also learn how to wash after eliminating, how to button her shirt/blouse and to tie laces of shoes. These things could be achieved by teaching her, in a step-by-step manner, the proper way of doing those things. The teacher and the family should have coordination so that the things Merlyn learned at school will be extended to their house. Teamwork Strategies The individuals that are accountable for the development of Merlyn are the sped teachers, parents, speech therapists, physical therapists and community members. Since the family can’t afford to have the speech therapists and physical therapists to help Merlyn, it is possible that the Sped teachers and the parents will work coordinately to help in the development of Merlyn. Conclusion With all these recommendations, I hope to see Merlyn writing her name independently. I hope to see her walking straight and having balance in going up and down the stairs. I also hope to hear her speaking clearly and coherently. Lastly, I hope to see her attending a regular class and graduate in any vocational course and be productive in the future. 2
