The activities that have been planned for the student at the class for her daily routine has been observed to be implemented and improved quiet well than her initial stage. There have been positive changes in the student. The student herself have seen trying her best to learn and improvised. As mentioned the student’s daily activity record are;

The student has been doing well in her writing and reading works. Her daily class routine covers classes of Mathematics, English and Nepali. And her personal activities in Mathematics include simple addition and subtraction, in English and Nepali includes writing general words and its explanations, spellings and handwritings.
The student has also been showing interest in drawing and coloring even she cannot give her full attention and concentrations. She tries to draw what her teachers or her volunteers directs in the class and colors as she wishes.
The recreational activities in her class includes playing indoor games, making puzzles, finding word games, dancing, singing, outing to park, movie watching and more. In these activities the student does not really show interest and cannot give her time in it fully. She gets easily distracted.
She has not been able to do her vocational activities and trainings. She cannot learn properly and do not show interest in these activities at all. So, she has not been doing vocational activities lately.
The student’s short-term and long-term goals were to make her involve in physical activities such as doing her own work, doing household chores, making her responsible of her own stuffs. The goal of the agency was also to make her responsible of her own activities and behavior and with time making her learn good habits and actions.
The goal has been achieved to some extent, as she is able to do her household chores, looks after her own things in the classroom, does her own activities and knows what should be done to have good habits. She can distinguish between what is wrong and what is right so her actions are shaped according to it. She mostly have mood swings because of which her actions are rude and negative sometimes but she is learning to control her actions.
The student has been helping in the class to look after the students and class. She also helps to look supervise the students of other classes whenever the teachers are busy. She does few simple tasks that have been directed from the teachers, volunteers and staff members.
Overall, till date the activities of the students have been developing in a positive way and she has been contributing in her activities as much as she can.
