Brain was recommended consulting a psychologist by public school, when he became 10 years old. He was no more able to acquire education. He was reported to have been different from his classmates from the beginning, by his concerned mother. He was observed demonstrating quite strange behaviour, such as isolating himself from other kids, just after being one year old, losing eye contact, not having attention on his mother’s face while interacting with her but remained gazing at her jewelry instead. However, physically he progressed well, yet he found difficulty in communication and exhibited rather a slow momentum. He was rather reluctant child and was not prepared to join the preschool, till his early 5 years. As soon as he joined the public school, his grandmother noticed him cultivating some eccentric and odd features in his personality. His mother struggled hard to support him to make him adjusted with his companions and get acclimatized to the school environment, but all went in vain. Brian had to face both social and academic challenges, having no companions. He was unable to receive teaching education and always had been inconsistent about following it. He interrupted during instruction. Therefore, educators at school showed disdain towards him. At Brain’s abusive remarks and offensive attitude towards his classmates, when they reacted accordingly, he was stricken with a shock.
Brain’s mother had to place feminine nappies to manage his unrestrained elimination of bowel and urine, even at the age of eight. Finally, when Brain grew up to the age of ten, his school management refused to accept him anymore and Jane had no other option except for accepting the fact. Brain seemed unmoved by quitting school, since he never established friendship with anyone. Jane consulted a psychiatrist for his therapy. Brain was recommended to receive special education at boarding school by psychotherapist. Surprisingly, Brain was excited to join that school and didn’t show his concerned for being parted from his mother, all he cared about missing toy train that he had been playing since his early childhood.
