Exceptional Needs Children

Exceptional Needs Children

Michael is a five year old boy who is facing developmental and social problems. He has just been diagnosed with haring loss and speech disorders that resulted from hearing loss.  He has problems speaking properly but has been working with speech therapist three times a week.

As a result of these developmental problems, it has been difficult for Michael to make friends because he rarely plays with children in the neighborhood. Michael is unable to make friends although at his age, children should have many friends and playing around with them. One of the main reasons why it has become difficult for Michael to make friends is due to his speech impairment due to loss of hearing.

Exceptional Needs Children

In most cases, making friendship is a social activity that requires the input of two parties (Hunt & Marshall, 1999). Michael has to communicate to his friends while his friends have to respond so that they can establish a mutual understanding between them. However, this is not the case here because children do not usually respond to Michael whenever he tries to communicate with them.
