Hello there. Following the Easter break, I am going to be working 1:1 with a different child. I don't know her terribly well, but needs must, as her usual 1:1 has just left the school. I'd like to ask for your advice please, so that I can do her justice. I am generally pretty successful in the 1:1 role, and have worked with children with autism and ADHD, to good effect. However I am a bit nervous about this change. The girl is in Year One, but is 2 years older than the other children in the class. To my knowledge, she isn't fully toilet trained. She is mostly able to recognise letters and numbers, but not write them. She is incredibly strong-willed - as well as physically strong (tries to wriggle out of holding your hand, won't always stand on two feet or comply with walking) - and has to be watched like a hawk, as she's a flight risk. She is rather mischievous, and likes to run through the class, toppling things over, etc. I suspect I'm going to have my work cut out Teacher's role with her is limited. I have been able to reason well with my other children, which definitely makes life easier. So if we do X and X, then we can do Y. However I don't think it's going to be as easy with this child, from a cognitive point of view. Ideally there would have been a transition period, to get to know her (and vice versa!), but no such luck in this case. I'd obviously really like for this to go well, for us both, but have no experience in working with children like Maggie (not real name). Your tips and help would be massively appreciated. Thank you.
