His mother reports that Malik does not like to run and jump and is very clingy to her. She says when she drops him off at his daycare, sometimes he cries for hours and it is difficult for the staff to calm him down. Although Malik does not like to run and jump, he can catch a ball and kick a ball. Malik knows about 20-30 words and is very interested in playing video games with his older sister. Malik’s mom said she does not spend a great deal of time with Malik because she works two jobs to make ends meet. Sometimes, Malik fights his older sisters when they will give him the big leggo block to play with rather than several of the mini pieces. His mom reported that Malik has visited his father on a few occasions. She describes his father as a bearded man and every man with a beard that Malik encounters, Malik says,”Daddy”. Malik’s mom says she whips him for this behavior. Malik’s mom has tried unsuccessfully to potty train Malik without success. She says, “I have whipped him, but he still will not do it:”. As Malik’s mom was talking about her inability to potty train Malik, he put his head down and begin to cry. She scolded him and told him he was not being a big boy. Malik does not like to play with other children at the Day Care. He prefers to play alone and has a hard time sharing. Many of the other children do not like playing with Malik. When at the Daycare, Malik jumps every time the classroom door slams and runs to hide under the chair. When this happens, he becomes irritated and cries. Malik’s teacher says she notices that Malik enjoys the carpet time and listening to “The Wheels on the Bus”. Since he enjoys listening to and watching these videos, she is teaching him about shapes and colors using this video.
