Tran Thanh Tam, born in 1985, suffers from Down syndrome. He lives in Tan Xuan ward, Dong Xoai town, Binh Phuoc province. Fortunately, after taking health check in the 2nd clinical examination at the Binh Phuoc Traditional Medicine Hospital, Tam was concluded that he does not have many serious problems with his physical movements.
Indeed, Tam can slowly walk and take care of his own activities of daily living. However, he would like to communicate with people in the surroundings, but interaction is his greatest obstacle in life. He tries to express his thoughts to the family and friends even though it is hard for them to understand.
As a wonderful idea, in order to improve his abilities, the experts who were invited to give him a health check gave some advice to his family that he should be taught how to use cellphones, be in touch with people, especially his family using verbal action. Moreover, Tam should be motivated by his mother when he does something right at home. For example, the mother can praise him up when he is able to step by step take a shower or motivate him to speak significant short sentences such as I am hungry, I want to eat and play with friends.
As a result, Tam has become more confident when interacting with people. Now he is no longer afraid of walking upstairs, and he can easily adapt to new exercises that he practices every day at home with the encouragement of the family. Tam does not need follow-up activity according to the experts’ opinions, but all believe that he can increase his abilities in short future and create his good routines following the timetable.
