Losing Tim

Paul Gionfriddo

Columbia University Press

In high school Tim remained below grade level, had low self-esteem, made poor choices in friends, and rebelled against authority. He was also diagnosed with personality disorder and oppositional defiant disorder, in addition to attention deficit disorder (ADD), depression, and post-traumatic disorder (PTSD). He reluctantly took his prescribed drugs and turned to marijuana to self-medicate. This chapter narrates Tim's struggles all throughout high school: his failed extra-curricula endeavors, his marijuana possession, along with several suspensions and detentions due to bad behavior. By the end of the school year, a scheduled Planning and Placement Team (PPT) meeting called for Tim's manifestation determination, functional behavioral analysis, and behavioral intervention plan review. Tim's parents finally decided to transfer him to boarding school.
