Ngoie Musasa Joelle [2]


Abstract: This study is about taking care of psychomotor developmental lag of a 7-year-old boy in Lubumbashi, whose field data collection was carried out by Karungi Mave Hope whom we thank. It aims to determine factors that can be at the root of this lag in psychomotor development in order to help the patient to integrate into the society and to become independent. The clinical method supported by the interview and clinical observation made it possible to collect the data, the analysis was carried out thanks to the content analysis and finally the thematic analysis served us in the processing of the results. After supportive psychotherapy and psychomotor exercises, we came to the physical, social and behavioural changes and there was autonomy in personal care. The patient has become independent, jovial, he talks and plays with his entourage, jokes, undresses alone and he now has friends. On an emotional level, we have seen recognition of self-image, a smile and good self-esteem.
