Increasing I feel like I am failing a child in my class... As the rest of the children develop he falls further and further behind. With most of the children in my class (primary 3/2) being able to complete a sentence and guess the spelling of most words I have a boy who still cannot complete simple tasks such as spelling, writing or recognising his own name. After teaching a lesson he requires one to one support to complete any follow up task as he has very little concentration and needs constant reassurance or help with reading or writing. With support in the class slowly disappearing due to council cut backs I find myself very stretched and more and more he is left on his own to cope as I need to give other groups help and advice. The more time he spends in the class the less children are patient with him and some find it very difficult to work with him as they feel like they are doing double the work. He also finds play difficult as he flees from one activity to the next with complaints from the children because he has stood on a game or knocked over blocks. I am lost as to what to do. It is difficult enough juggling 5 groups within the class because it is a composite but every day I am looking out more and more separate work for him to suit his ability (which the primary 1's next door have completed in term 2!) help!
