Losing Tim

Paul Gionfriddo

Columbia University Press

This chapter focuses on the events surrounding Tim's transfer to his new school. The school staff at the new school made adjustments based on Tim's Individualized Education Program (IEP), resulting in his improved grades and performance. Fourth grade was a positive experience for Tim as a direct result of the school personnel's skilled, creative, and collaborative approach. However, despite their best efforts, Tim's mental illness continued to present itself dramatically. He was diagnosed with several neuro-behavioral problems including impulsivity and inattention, with an element of anger and depression. Tim's father suggested that they needed to be creative in developing new strategies, including a behavior support plan, to manage both Tim's mental health needs and educational program.
