Lunch Date

slol 2013Thursday: disruptive, defiant, making noises, disrespectful
Friday: disengaged, wandering, throwing things
Monday: non-stop noises, distracting, refused to do work
Later on: sat quietly by my side did his math, showed his ability, given lots of praise had lunch together
Meeting with parents: very concerned, want to help, experts to do testing

Teacher: feeling uncertain, want to help, glad that the parents are supportive
Understanding: that we will do what we can to help, that we all care about him
