He has a positive attitude about learning and is persistent when facing challenges. His favorite thing about school is music time. He loves to sing and dance. During center time, he plays with instruments and listens to music on head phones. His school also has a music teacher, and Howard is learning how to play the piano. Howard was recently diagnosed with a learning disability and his cognitive and language development appears delayed. His parents want to put him in an academically focused program that does not include music education.
