You made some valid points. Teachers are not trained art therapists and
should not be expected or do the diagnosing. As you said, you can be
aware of red flags. If you see a pattern, you might want to approach the
child. Often times simply approaching the child and asking them to
"explain" their picture wll offer clear logical responses that have
nothing to do with a problem- or it will clarify potential problems.
