You are providing therapy in a school setting with Lizzy, an 8 year-old Mexican American bilingual child. She was referred by her teacher who indicated that Lizzy isolates herself from other students, is often irritable and has difficulty focusing in class. In the sessions you notice she is self critical and she never recognizes any of her personal strengths. You have attempted to contact Lizzy’s parents in an effort to set up a parent meeting and have left a couple voicemails but have not received a call back. The information in your file indicates that Lizzy is receiving some educational accommodations due to her difficulty “keeping up” academically.
