Meet one of our new students, Daniel Omar, age 4. Daniel Omar lives with his mother and grandparents. His mother was 17 years old when he was born and he had many health complications including surgery to keep him alive. He spent the first two months of his life in hospital. Doctors warned the family that he might end up with language, hearing or vision problems as a result. Luckily, he hasn’t yet presented with any of these problems.
In the last two months, we’ve observed that Daniel Omar is generally very happy here, but he reacts aggressively during lively activities where children shout, laugh loudly, or where the music is loud. Our teachers spoke with his mother and grandparents to help them access professional help from psychologists and neurologists to support his full development by identifying the underlying issues.
