$199.99 $79.00

Full Day

You’ve worked with the child who has difficulty transitioning from one activity to another, becoming upset or overly silly. Waiting for his turn is difficult if not impossible, as is following daily routines. Despite repeated requests from his teacher to “use your words,” he typically is not able to communicate his wants and needs and becomes angry or shuts down. This child lacks self-regulation, and struggles both academically and socially.
