    BALLARD: Yes, which is why we started her out with the older children. But Lal couldn't understand the nuances of how they related to each other.

    BALLARD: It isn't working out that way. (She shows him the classroom. Lal is standing by the wall while the children are around a table together) The children were afraid of her.
