Michaels needs might consist of physically; food and drink to maintain energy when he starts school. His shock and stress would have made him tired, or the school activities could have worn him out. Emotionally, he would need the feeling of safety provided for him, he was used to a safe environment with his family the sudden change for him should be made adaptable for him. Intellectually, he would need motivation - school gives a lot of new things to learn, he would need the push and belief of knowing he could cope.
