“Sweet Shane is diagnosed with down syndrome.  Shane is under foster care in the orphanage. He is very smart. He learns fast and can figure out his own way. When he was learning to put on shoes, he would line all the shoes up and try on each pair and he would check in the mirror to see if the shoes looked good. He can go get his favorite toys and use blocks to build something he likes. He can put away his toys. He is not talking yet. He understands “no.” He will reach for things when given. He can follow directions of the teachers to put away his toys and put on stickers. He will imitate the teacher to do something. He will learn from the teacher how to wash his face. When the teacher praises him, he is very happy. He is active and extroverted. He likes music, toys, and games. He gets up at 7:00 am and then goes to the bathroom. He eats breakfast (milk, noodles, egg or meat congee) at 7:30 and has lunch (rice+mashed meat+vegetables+meat soup) at11:30. He eats one bowl each time. He naps from 12:00-14:00. At 18:00 he has dinner. He will eat fruit or a snack after lunch and he drinks milk before going to bed at night. He goes to bed at 8:30 pm. He gets mental and physical training from 8:30—11:30 and from 14:30—17:00. He is brought to the potty at regular intervals and will not wet his pants. He is a good sleeper.
