Nelson is active, likes to hanging around. The staff could hardly find him when doing other things, he runs very fast. He likes to giggle. He is afraid of new places and strangers, he would cry sometimes. He is timid and was diagnosed with Autism. He could understand the instructions from his mother, like squat to urinate, close the door behind him, throw rubbish into the trash can after eating. He likes to find toys and play by himself instead of playing with other children and he doesn’t like communicating with others, he would cry or seek hug from his mother when meeting strangers. Nelson would pick up things to eat when playing outdoors and feel curious when picking up things from ground. Nelson’s language development is not good, he can speak some simple words like mummy. He needs more communication and education compared with normal children. He is developmentally delayed compared with other children who had cleft lip and palate.
