Teacher playing favorites
I have done volunteer work in a special needs school and worked closely with a specific teacher. She tends to play favorites with certain students. It is very obvious to anyone observing and while the students are low functioning, some of them are beginning to catch on. There are a few who receive very little attention from her and are beginning to act up as a result. Is there anything I can do to help this situation as simply a volunteer?

If there is anything you can do, I would talk to the teachers around you and let them know about the situation and see if there is anything that can be done. Possibly speaking to the teacher and letting them know that the students are noticing that they are favoring other students.

As a volunteer I would go straight to the teacher and tell her that you feel certain students are acting out in order to receive attention from her. You do not have to tell her that you feel like she is playing favorites just let her know that from being in the classroom and observing student behavior you feel that some are acting out for attention. Students no matter their age or ability will do anything for attention, they would rather receive attention for being bad instead of not receiving any attention at all. Let the teacher know that you are trying to help her eliminate some of the bad behaviors in the classroom.

As a volunteer you may be able to make up for some of that lack of attention. It is hard for teachers to give all of their students all of the attention the need. You could try to help with some of the other students by answering questions and encouraging them.
