Hands to Yourself
I have a student in my classroom that is constantly touching his peers. Whether sitting in a chair, sitting on the rug, in line, in the bathroom--everywhere. Most of the time it's innocent, but it does bother his peers. My assistant and I continually remind him to keep his hands to himself. We have also used visuals while giving this direction, but he continues to touch others. What can I do to keep his hands to himself?

Set up a conference with his parents together create a system that can ensure he keeps his hands to himself and reinforce his positive behaviors when not touching others with things he enjoys doing at school. Also try adding more sensory elements in the classroom and during lesson concepts to keep his hands busy.

I would remind this student to keep his hands to himself by giving him a cue; for example hands on his lap, or I'd give him a fidget toy to see if that helps. This student will then learn that I expect his hands to be on one place either the fidget which could be a squishy, book or a stuffed animal or I'd have him tap his thighs while sitting criss cross apple sauce/ sitting in a chair.

One solution would be to redirect the students attention by changing the situation, such as having them move to a different section during rug time, having the stand next to an assistant in the line. Another potential solution is changing his actions by giving a more concrete suggestion. Instead of saying keep your hands to yourself, provvide a sensory toy or ask him to give himself a hug, cross his arms, or a high five to redirect that energy elsewhere.

keep reinforcing the command hands to yourself. remember that takes time to develop a habit, takes even more time to get rid of one. Create a mini behavioral plan, so you can praise the student maybe with treasure box at the end of the week.
