Orphanage Report #4

Date: 3/9/1971

Case Number:  #7139

Location: Ilsan Orphanage. She is still in Dr. A’s dormitory. There are 16 little children from age under 1 up to 2 1/2 years.

General Health: Looks all right.

Developmental report: For meal she eats half a bowl of rice mixed with soup. Usually understands simple commands. She has a larger vocabulary now. Is not toilet trained yet. Walks well. Can almost run. Handling is good.

Social relationships: Can fetch diapers or bowls. Can point
to one who made mistake. Wants to keep nice things to herself. May try to soothe a child younger than herself when it cries. May mimick hitting if a big child cries. She mimick combing hair or acting out songs when adults are not around. If a stranger wants her to come, she does not come easily but just stares. Likes to stay with children.

Summary and recommendation: This little girl is 2 years and 3
months old. She looks all right in her physical and emotional
development. She seems rather behind in language development. She is not very expressive of her happy feelings. Needs continued love and attention.
