Hi I am a TA and I work with groups of Special needs / low ability children every day. This term I have been given a boy who has the attention span of a gnat. He calls out, fidgets constantly, gets up and down out of his seat, plays with pens etc. which distracts all the others. If I take the things off him, he starts pulling faces or jiggles about which distracts the other kids again! I have tried ignoring him but that that doesn't work because then the other children start complaining that "X is doing such and such." and is stopping them from concentrating. I follow the behaviour policy which involves time out at the third warning. He goes for time out to another class, then comes back and starts all over again! The teacher I work with is only in her second year of teaching and she has the same problems with him in the afternoon. She hasn't found anything that works with him yet either. She tried giving him some blu tac to hold but that I think this child has some problem like ADHD as I really think he can't help being such a pain. He also sometimes seems genuinely bewildered when he gets told off for being rude and disruptive. I have spoken to the SENCO and the Head about him but in the meantime I am struggling. Any advice or strategies that might work would be really appreciated please!
