Student background

Student Caleb
Age 8
Year 3
School Primary

Caleb lives at home with his mother, father, sister, and a dog that he adores. He loves cars, trucks, and Perceptual Motor Programme (PMP) time at school. Caleb has global delay and wants to drive buses when he is an adult.

Caleb is in a class of 28 children in a large primary school. The school receives 0.1 FTTE teacher support from ongoing and reviewable resourcing schemes (ORRS) funding and 12 hours of teacher aide time.

This string of stories came about by chance. The gardener offered us a garden plot and Caleb enjoyed working in the garden so we ran with that idea. In this string of stories Caleb chooses some suitable vegetables to plant, takes an interest in worms, and finally picks and eats some vegetables for which he has been responsible.
