Moderate Mental Disability
Jackson is 13-year-old boy, who is living in a children’s home in Eastern Europe. Jackson lived with his mother until he was 8-years-old when his new stepfather started treating him badly. He was taken out of his home and placed with a foster family. After spending two years with a foster family, he was placed in the children’s home with 15 other kids close to the area where he was born.
Jackson is physically well developed for his age but has some difficulties learning and sometimes has behavioral issues.
He is in good physical condition. He walks independently, can eat by himself and take care of himself without help. Jackson has some basic hygiene habits and he performs daily activities of everyday life, but, like most kids, he needs a reminder. He works willingly, but sometimes has trouble following instructions. He enjoys taking part in all types of activities where he is active and organized. He has a calm demeanor and doesn’t get stressed in new situations. He is verbal and social but reserved.
Jackson loves to paint and watch cartoons. He’s a friendly child who seeks encouragement and approval from the adults in his life. He has good, socially acceptable behavior and fits easily into new teams. Jackson is in the 6th grade at his local school. He is also enrolled in afterschool social services in a Center for Social Integration and Rehabilitation and in the Day Care Center for Children with Disabilities, where specialists work with him.
