Losing Tim

Paul Gionfriddo

Columbia University Press

This chapter talks about how Tim was generally distracted, disagreeable, and disturbing during the summer between fifth and sixth grade, while his organizational skills grew worse. It was clear that significant changes needed to be made to Tim's Individualized Education Program (IEP), but school staff were not immediately able to implement the revised IEP. Tim's behavior support plan was not ready when the school year began, and his classroom supports and instructional modifications were once again put on hold. The chapter also details events following Tim's incident with the gun, from his compulsory manifestation determination, to his father's legal fight against the school administration regarding Tim's suspension and due process, in between these events, Tim was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Keywords:   Individualized Education Program, behavior support plan, manifestation determination, suspension, post-traumatic stress disorder, PTSD
