Student: nonverbal, wheelchair confined & 9 siblings dealing with grief of parent/Nan dying.
Student has been cared for by her Nan along with 9 siblings for many years. Nan has died two weeks ago. Student is 7 and totally reliant on others for full time care as she is wheelchair bound, nonverbal (learning to use a sight activated device for communication). The student is carried on and off the bus that transports her to school as she lives 52km away from the school.
Nan has been full time carer for this student along with her 9 siblings. With her death recently, an older sibling (22 years old) has taken over as full-time carer for the entire family and my student. So they are dealing with many difficult situations along with grief.
