He also like running around, helping everybody who needs help. He also likes drawing funny pictures. In the class he can concentrate for few minutes the rest of the time will be disturbing others, but when given individual attention, using sign language and a variety of learning aids after which he can really concentrate.
The story of his life is not all that good because he has some impairments that is Speech and Hearing (totally deaf) but doing very well in his studies when given individual attention.

Bob is 6 years of old he is in Nursery class. He has severe intellectual impairment, he lives with parents who are very poor who cannot afford paying school fees and other needs. He is always punctual and attentive in class, but very slow in areas like learning, playing, associating with his fellow learners and sharing material things in class and outside class. Apart from the above mentioned, Bob is also a stubborn boy who doesn’t like or respond to teachers’ instructions, sometimes violent whereby he needs to calm him down with calming tactics in a calming room! He behaves like an adult person by not wanting to be directed and helped whenever he is in difficulties. So he needs special attention, and persuasive tongue.
