Fighting!
I work with Special needs middle school students and they are consistently trying to fight each other in the classroom. What should I do?

I would call admin and a behavior specialist in order to calm them down. They also need to know there are consequences for fighting. Fighting is not tolerated and they need to reminded of this. If referrals are necessary then so be it.

If there have been multiple instances of trying to get them to calm down, I would say that this is the best solution. It is detrimental to the other students to have fighting going on, and if you cannot handle it alone it is best to get someone with more authority and specialization involved. There is no shame in asking for help, and if you have attempted to solve the problem before it shows that you are not running to the administration at the first sign of things getting tough.

If they're getting physical and it's constant, I would get administration and their parents involved. If it's something that separating them can help, that would be a good start, but it sounds like parents and administration need to be involved. Good luck !

Find a way to occupy their attention and get them to actively participate in the class. Also, putting them together could also work as if being together could potentially have them be acceptable of each other and limit the fighting that occurs.

I would for sure call in support from administration and possibly the school resource officer.

Try separating the students that want to fight so they are not next to each other in the classroom.

I would separate them and have them calm down then bring them back together to talk about what made them upset in the first place. I would have them come up with a plan for combating anger when someone offends them.
