Case study 1: Gemma is a five-year-old child who attends a kindergarten/preschool where you are the teacher. Her family has communicated to you that she enjoys physical activities and ball games, but can become upset if she is ‘losing’ or having to wait for a turn. She enjoys high- level conversations, often not listening to instruction when asked to stop chatting and focus on her task. She also has an advanced artistic flair. Gemma has had several outbursts since she began attending three months ago. On four separate occasions, she has physically struck out at other children in the group by punching and kicking them. She has also been noticed pinching other children and then running away so the child does not see her. These incidents have been observed and documented. You have been trying to engage with her family but are not having any success.
