He is a class killer. If nothing is done he will drop out or the other classmates will. Plain and Simple.
You work in a buxiban, not a clinic, this isn't your problem.
He's on medication-parents/caregivers have been notified and are just trying to socialize him. They think that the more interaction he has the better he will get.
"Just put him in any class, as long as he is around other kids."
It starts at home, but in reality there are people that just don't give a flying f$ck.
It's like bringing your nutter dog to a dog park to socialize it; it either works or it doesn't. This takes time.
Drag him out kicking and screaming? Other kids know you mean business but he won't give a shit.
I have had students like that, if there are 'problems' then I kindly tell the parents there are issues and if improvement isn't shown then they will be asked to leave. In your situation that won't work.
Unfortunately you won't get much support in this situation from your coworkers.
The environment you are in doesn't allow you to act like Mother Teresa.
Experiment with the seating plan....every 'trouble' kid reacts a bit different.
This student probably won't leave before other students do first. SO....to save your class.
1) Keep him motivated.He can change his behavior with you, if you work at it. You have to be prepared. You have mentioned that extra material seems to keep him busy. If his English is strong compared to other classmates, then to me that means he is bored with the class material. He won't be changed to another class so keep on giving him advanced materials.
2) Assuming he doesn't get much support at home, parents aren't much help.
3) Students with concentration problems just need more stimulation. It keeps them busy. Put frankly, keep him doing something so that the boredom factor doesn't set in. What things can you give him so that the whole class doesn't turn to shit?
You have to figure out what 'turns his crank'
If he does his written work then he can read/complete:(these you change up-they get tired quickly)
1) Picture dictionary
2) Comic books
3) Sensory puzzles(finding series of objects, Where's Waldo? etc...
6) Brain Teasers/Puzzles
Change these activities as per the class schedule. Get him to do the written work when you are doing some oral activity and then give him the activities as a reward when the students are doing written work.
Currently I have 7 students with some kind of clinical 'issue'. ADD/ADHD/Turrets/Aspergers. Every one of them seem to react positively to stimulation. They all have social issues. They all are very strong linguistically. They just can't control themselves socially.
Sad but true.
Keep them busy. Positive stimulation. Change their activity. Low attention span. Poor social skills.
Takes practice. If you get it right you are laughing.
Won't affect the classmates. How much time does it take to take one thing and give them another?
This way he is not disturbing the class. He interacts with the class for a bit and then does something else. Then a little interaction and another activity.
