A couple of months ago, my 7-year-old son had a complete freak-out at school. I received a call at work telling me in terse tones to come as soon as possible because V. was having a very difficult day. When I arrived, I was quickly directed to the child study team office where I was greeted by the entire team (case manager, psychologist, behaviorist, speech therapist) plus the principal. That's when I knew this was serious.
