Now it can be argued that the tradition to separate children according to the degree of mental retardation and "reject" those who do not fit within certain limits, is outdated and does not lead to a positive result. If a child with a similar pathology is at home, the situation itself stimulates him to learn different skills, he seeks to communicate with his peers, play and learn.
Often a child is admitted to the hospital. Local pediatrician insists on the hospitalization, and the administration of child care requires the conclusion of the medical commission. For any specialist dealing with a toddler, it is characterized by a desire to help him, using all available methods. Therefore, the basic, familiar and affordable way to help him is hospitalization for examination and treatment of opportunistic diseases. But at the same time a child gets into the closed world of the hospital, where he is surrounded by the same kids who are unable to acquire the necessary skills. The degree of severity of the disorder depends on the ability to fully communicate with their peers and develop the curriculum or the child cannot learn how to eat with a spoon from a plate or dress.
The main thing that offers the child medical department, this is treatment. He does not receive qualified educational assistance, timely training. And if he receives it, it is in a minimum volume. Staying in the family a toddler can watch the older brother or sister, for neighborhood children and seeks to learn how to play, speak, read, just as they are. At the hospital, the child has no such an example, and he and the other children satisfied with primitive games and communicating with gestures.
Today, more retarded children are under the care of loving parents who are ready to fight for their development and adaptation in society. With the help of close friends such child has the opportunity to qualify for education, treatment and communication with peers. Practice shows that even the most "heavy" children with proper treatment they seek to communicate and activity. With the help of simple, affordable games they begin to interact with the teacher, and then the child's learning skills that would later be necessary for him.
Of course, one cannot expect that the child with severe intellectual disabilities will be able to overcome this problem completely. The work of different specialists aims to give the child a chance to develop as much as possible the abilities that are possible.
Now it can be argued that the tradition to separate children according to the degree of mental retardation and "reject" those who do not fit within certain limits, is outdated and does not lead to a positive result.
