Extreme EBD in KS1

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by emmayorkshire, Jun 19, 2011.

  1. Need some new advice on managing EBD in KS1.
    Some issues are -total non-compliance, needs to be in total control. Physical attacks, verbal abuse, absconding, tantrums, destroying classroom, oral fixation, preoccupation with fantasy violence/death. Not found a reward or motivation or punishment that is strong enough to modify behaviour.
    Awaiting statement, got all relevant agencies involved, parental support, TA support and had Team Teach training.
    Any new and inspirational ideas to encourage acceptable behaviour?

    this behaviour is not "normal/usual" for ks1 children. Alongside trying to mange it, which I would imagine is wearing you out and affecting the rest of the class, you need to ensure you have flagged up some of the things in your list to a member of SMT. Sometimes, children need specialist help and the sooner outside agencies become involved the better. Keep a record, tiring I know but can prove extremely useful in the end, of incidents and resolve to keep bringing up the subject with yoour SMT. Good luck.
     
  4. Ticks many of the boxes for 'attachment disorder' - if so this is a highly complex disorder to deal with - most 'normal' behaviour modification systems don't work as the child's need for control is so over-riding that they will see right through any system/manipulate them. Might be worth having a look at some of the websites out there for advice or to see if it matches what you are seeing in this child. Try this one - even if this is not the right diagnosis, a lot of the disordered thinking and ways to deal with it may be useful.
