Would appreciate ideas. I have a student who, whatever you ask them, always responds 'no'/ 'I don't know'? E.g. 'Do you recognise this symbol?' 'Can you pick up your file?' 'Do you know what the answer is/What's the answer to...' Should explain; I'm working 1:1 - I wouldn't put them on the spot in front of a class. I've asked advice from teachers who have been working with them - they've said that partly it's the student's learning difficulties and partly, frankly, the student is a bit lazy and needs pushing. The thing is, the more I push at the moment, the more they are pushing back - I think it's turning into a power struggle which is obviously not helpful. The situation isn't helped because in the context I'm working in, I'm not given information about specific problems. The organisation's philosophy is that diagnoses can often be incorrect/we're all on a spectrum anyway/we need to get to know the student. Any ideas, anyone?
