Behavioral Assessments - Felix is an inquisitive, resourceful
15-year-old high school student with traumatic brain injury. He has
struggled academically and behaviorally for years. In middle school,
when presented with a difficult or complex assignment, he would
frequently whine, stomp his feet, or hit his teacher or another
student. When reprimanded, Felix would often run out of the room and,
on several occasions, left the school grounds without permission.
