I am new to my role in a special needs school and I will be working with a boy age 13 turning 14 who has MLD, very poor spelling and reading (reading age is about 5) and who just sits in the classroom and swears. He runs out of the room, throws equipment and aggrivates other students (most children in the group have autism) In the past I have asked the Teaching Assistants to take him out to complete the lesson, but he never does do the work. He has threatened to hit me when I have asked him to complete the work and tried behaviour management strategies. Does anyone have any good strategies or even books to read? I'm getting desperate! I teach this child for a number of subjects, no teacher in the school has really been able to get through to him.
