Case study below : Case Study

Jennifer is a twenty-year-old high school student diagnosed with a mild intellectual disability. She is on track to graduate from public high school at the end of the school year in approximately five months. Jennifer is described as a quiet person who typically keeps to herself but who works diligently without needing much interaction with others in her environment. Jennifer will initiate and engage in conversation with familiar peers and adults but will not initiate interactions with people she does not know. She is shy and quiet with unfamiliar people and avoids eye contact when asked questions.

Jennifer currently lives with her parents and typically developing younger brother but indicated to her teacher she would like to live with an older cousin in a few years. Her father works two jobs outside the home. Her mother has a full-time job but is usually able to participate in school meetings. Jennifer enjoys shopping with her girlfriends, and she was in the cheerleading club at her high school.

For the past year and a half, Jennifer has worked at a small bakery shop approximately fifteen hours per week. She assists with general baking tasks and stocking items the display case. She does not handle money or participate in customer transactions. Jennifer enjoys her job at the bakery, but her preferred employment would be in the kitchen of a downtown restaurant. However, Jennifer does not yet possess the skills necessary to be a cook or line chef. Jennifer will need to learn several new skills to reach her goal of working in a restaurant kitchen. Jennifer also indicated she might be interested in applying for a position at a local fast food chain to gain relevant experience.

Currently her older cousin or mother will drive her to and from her part-time bakery job. Jennifer intends to work full time after high school, but she will no longer have access to transportation through her family members. Jennifer has never utilized public transportation, although she would have access to a public bus system. Her parents are interested in strategies to help Jennifer get ready for work independently in the mornings after they leave the house for work. Jennifer often forgets important items such as her employee badge, cell phone, wallet, or keys.

Jennifer reads independently at a fourth-grade level and can do basic addition and subtraction at a third-grade level. She has not mastered multiplication, but she is able to utilize the calculator function on a cell phone. She is unable to read or interpret signs in unfamiliar settings. While she understands time and can utilize a digital clock, she is unable to tell time using analog clocks which are often found in restaurant kitchens. Jennifer demonstrates adequate hygiene and is able to complete her self-care routine at home with minimal assistance or reminders.
