I have a student who is sweetie but has much difficulty
controlling his body, his mouth, he is a huge disruption
to our days. I am at my wit's end. Mom does not at all
agree - has made this VERY clear - that any sort of extra
help is needed. I believe that he is sensory seeking and
have tried a special seat for him to sit on, koosh balls
etc. to manipulate when he is fidgety. He goes out for
motor breaks. He has a weighted vest that mom did
agree to. There are times I simply can't teach with him
in the room. I have tried rewards, consequences.
I want to cry. I so badly want him to feel successful but
it's very difficult - especially when the parent does not
share my views.
