Is The Behavior Conduct Or Clinical?

Is The Behavior Conduct Or Clinical?

Teachers will respond or react to a student who exhibits verbal or physical conduct problems. I mean, that’s our job right? But what about the kid whose head is down on his desk, the kid who is just so quiet that you wonder what is going on behind those eyes, the kid who is disaffected but really is not a behavior problem at all? Often we can be so concerned about the outward conduct of our students that the disaffected kid can get lost in the sauce. This kid needs our help.
