Being paired up with others to work on projects results in Sean acting irritably and giving up. Lack of participation in the classroom has resulted in lack of enthusiasm for his homework. Thus, he is failing most of his classes.
Last week Sean threw a chair at his tablemate and is now facing expulsion, as he has already been suspended twice. Realizing that Sean's problems are much larger than he can handle, the school guidance counselor has referred Sean and his parents to you for further assessment, and treatment.
