Case study (95 marks)
Luke is an 8-year-old in Primary 2. Ever since he entered primary school, there were several complaints about his rough handling of his peers. The usual complaints from his classmates were that he would take their belongings without asking for permission. He would also
interrupt conversations and push or hit his peers should they decide not to engage or play with him.
Recently, his teachers noticed that some of his classmates were very afraid of him, and many did not want him to be in their group for group projects. Not long after the observation of these behaviours, his form teacher received an email complaint from the parents of another child in the class, stating that Luke had pushed their daughter while boarding the school bus the day before and caused her to fall. Due to the complaint of severe pain and the swell on her arm, her parents decided to send the girl to the Accident and Emergency (A&E) department in the hospital. An X-ray revealed a dislocation of the girl’s arm.
