Student background

Student Corban
Age 6
Year 1
School Primary

Corban loves policemen and trucks. He has several friends and his interests now include soccer. Corban is one of the first children in the class ready for the school day. Corban speaks in three to four-word phrases or sentences and he is short sighted.

Corban has global developmental delay. Corban is in a class of 21 children and has a supplementary learning support (SLS) teacher three times a week for three quarters of an hour per session to further support his learning. He uses others as a cue for speech and behaviour; for example, if another child laughs, Corban will laugh. He is unaware of body space and the significance people place on their belongings. Corban responds well to clear and close boundaries. There are inconsistencies with his learning and therefore it is difficult to know where to aim things at times.
