I work in a mainstream junior school and am having difficulties with the behaviour of an autistic pupil in my class of 30. I have no support. He is having difficulties following expectations for behaviour towards others - often hits out at other pupils and insults them and is becoming physical with staff - pushing, grabbing and shouting right in our faces. Any requests and reminders of the school rules are met with refusal and statement that they do not apply to him. He regularly storms out of class with a backward insult and slams the door. Now to the rest of the class he appears daily to get away with open defiance which is affecting their behaviour. I want to create a social story to work towards acceptance of the rules and consequences. Any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
