I posted on here a few times, relating to a child I work 121 with in Year 2. He has a statement for behaviour problems but hasn't been diagnosed with anything. I believe (as does his mother and most staff) that he has Pathological Demand Avoidance. He has a completely Jeckyll and Hyde character. Can be very polite, helpful and kind some of the time, but then can change if he doesn't get what he wants, or is expected to comply with school rules (written task, listen to teacher, sit on carpet, etc) whereby he will tip over chairs, throw whole tubs of stationery (and anything else to hand). He has been excluded for three sessions this week, for violence towards me, and then for throwing a bin at two children in the classroom. There are children who are petrified of his outbursts and become very scared when he has his tantrums. The option of removing the class is not possible due to the amount of complaints other parents have made as the children are being disrupted far too often. One parent has actually removed her child from school because of his behaviour, and others are threatening to. I am reluctant to appraoch this child when he is having a tantrum as he will attack me, but the alternative is too risky with a class full of children. I am beginning to dread going into school, it's like walking on eggshells wondering what mood he's going to be in.
