A few students in particular had specific disordered that delayed or made them lack the ability or drive to be social. In Erickson’s stages of personal and social development, one of my students would be in stage four based upon his age. My student is 8 ears old but socially should be placed in the beginning stages of stage three. In stage four, children aged 6 to 12 years, children begin to want to create things and begin to understand their abilities (Salvin, 2015 pg. 50). My student had no interest in doing thing or creating things. He had no understanding of what he could and couldn’t do. He was working on strengthening his vocabulary but he loved playing outdoors and having adults encourage or reward him with outdoor activities. Based on these things he would be in Erickson’s third stage, Initiative versus Guilt (Salvin, 2015 p. 50). Part of their Individual Education Plan was to help them gain social skills to help them succeed in our community and it was very important for me, as a volunteer, to understand what they would need in that aspect to
My client, whom I will call “Jay,” is an eight-year-old, African-American boy, who was referred to our agency by his mother who wanted him to get “any services he could get for free.” He has some emotional and behavioral deficiencies, and does not handle stress well. He has frequent outbursts in class, and reacts without thinking. He needs to work on his interaction skills, and develop strategies that will help him use his words instead of physical reactions when he is frustrated. Because his trigger is frustration, he needs to learn to respond in a positive manner to his peers and teachers. Also, “Jay” needs to learn how to think and act independently.

For this research paper my client will be known as H.C. This particular client has suffered from multiple diagnoses during his time at Sonoma Developmental Center (SDC). My client has lived at SDC since 1947, at the age of 13 years old. H.C. willingly came to SDC when his family could no longer cope with his behaviors. He liked to be independent and was an active worker when he worked at his job sites. H.C. had a bundle of past achievements that he enjoyed mentioning to his aides by pointing at pictures. At a frail age H.C. could do his activities of daily living, but needs assistance from time to time. Physically H.C. was a short man with balding white hair and had poor eyesight so he wore glasses. His walking gait was failing and his feet would shift against the floor, so he had a walker that he could use. He was socially withdrawn and would only communicate when he felt that his needs were pressed. He had trouble finding words to communicate what he wanted to say and would like to do things on his own rather than relying on staff. He also lived by his set schedule, so anytime there was an appointment set for him he needed to be reminded before his day began.
