Chapter 6 Scenario: Brock’s Runny Nose
Objective and scenario

Brock is a delightful 4-year old who has Down syndrome. During the first weeks of the preschool session, he seemed to listen carefully, try hard, and get along well with his classmates. So far, you are pleased with his progress.
One of your assistant teachers expressed concern about Brock’s continuously runny nose and productive cough during a recent team meeting. She wonders if this is normal or a sign of illness, so you share your knowledge about children who have Down syndrome with the group. However, today you both have observed that Brock is noticeably more listless than usual, his cough is more frequent, and he has begun rubbing his right ear.
