娜娜十二岁入校,不会表达自己的需要,只会像鹦鹉学舌一样机械模仿。不时地哭闹、晃头、哼哼、吃鼻涕、撕纸吃、甚至抠破脸吃渗出的血。无法与人交流沟通,拒绝参加各种活动。生活不能自理,一切需别人照顾。

Nana started her school life when she was 12 years old, she could not express her requires at that time, except for mechanical imitation of others like a parrot [echolalia]. She used to cry, sway her head, groan, eat nasal mucus, eat scraps of paper, and even ate blood after picking at her face. She could not communicate with other people, and she refused any kinds of activities. She could not look after herself, there must be someone to take care of her.

老师利用该生喜好音乐的特点,课堂上以乐声作为“兴奋剂”,以脚踏风琴为康复工具,以弹钢琴作为她的必修课,开发智力促进其身心协调发展和各种能力的形成。

The teacher made the most of her interest in music to develop her intelligence. She used music as the “stimulant” [or motivator], used the organ as the rehabilitation tool, and piano became Nana’s required course. By doing this, the teacher tried to promote the coordinated development of both Nana’s physical and mental abilities, which also helped establish her other skills.

在学校学习10年后,她不仅基本克服了多种行为障碍,生活也能基本自理,还初步形成了良好的生活习惯和课堂习惯。不仅说话时声音响亮,口齿清楚,还有主动言语行为,能向老师表达在家所做的事情,向家长汇报在校主要表现;不仅学科水平有一定的提高,能口算20以内的加减法,还能抄写课文,摸读课文;不仅能弹电子琴,钢琴,还能吹口琴、竖笛和葫芦丝等多种乐器;在提示或暗示下还有明显关心别人的意识和举动。

After 10 years’ study in school, Nana not only overcame her behavior disorders, but she also could take care of herself in daily life, besides, she began to form good habits both in class and home. Nana’s voice began to be loud and clear when she was talking, she wanted to share her school life with her family, she also shared the details of her family life with her teacher. Nana made great progress in her study: she did addition and subtraction problems within twenty accurately; she copied and recited the text quickly; she could play many instruments such as electronic organ, piano, harmonica, clarinet, and cucurbit flute; she began to show her care for others.

Since leaving school, Nana now lives at home with her parents.  She can wash herself, eat, take rest, and amuse herself according to a particular routine.  She can also take part in social activities with the help of her family.
