  1. Thank you for including our foil fold-overs:) This was simple and super fun!

  2. Amanda, Thanks so much for including my speech and language series segment today! Hope your readers enjoy!

  3. Aggression, the Prequel is a great article and a must read for all teachers (and parents).
    The key was Rene giving him the choice of breakfast or a cuddle–the acceptance of Harrison as he was.
    NB: contrary to popular opinion “understanding” what home was like was unimportant. Harrison’s behavior is sufficient to tip us of that SOMEthing is amiss at home–what it is doesn’t really matter, and having Betty say what it is, isn’t all that valuable since “Do you want breakfast or a cuddle this morning?” is the right approach to Harrison regardless of what is said. (What Betty said wasn’t even the whole story, anyway.)
    Diagnosis is overrated. Being free enough to come up with a creative response is key.
