Tim is now 4 years old, and his parents return for a follow-up visit.

An IEP was implemented for him. He attends a special-needs preschool program through his local school district. His IEP provides for placement in a small classroom.

A little boy being helped with getting dressed

He receives ABA, as well as speech and occupational therapy. His parents are pleased he is making progress in his communication and social skills.

However, at home they are concerned he has to have his toys and meals a certain way, has tantrums daily, and is aggressive toward his younger sister, biting and kicking her when he is frustrated.
