Behavior student
Ms. Robins have a male student in the 2nd grade class that can not function on his own while learning in the classroom. If he sits at his own table he does not complete his work and draws on the table, constantly moving around the room, playing, talking, and destroying pencils, crayons, etc. When she sits him at her table he consistently completes his assignments. She has spoken to the parents several times. She has put him on a daily hourly behavior plan with incentives. She has expressed her concerns to administration. He thinks it is funny and continues to be a class clown. He is already on RTI and has been held back in the third grade.

The teacher has done a great job with contacting parents and administration regarding her concerns. It sounds as though the student may have some sort of learning disability and is showing task avoidance. Since the student is already on RTI, the teacher needs to continue with the behavior plan and monitor him for 6 weeks. According to the RTI process, after she successfully monitors him for the given length of time, he can be referred to be tested by the school psychologist.

The counselor may be another option. The student is performing when he gets the close proximity from the teacher, which leads me to believe he enjoys the attention and encouragement he must be getting from her when working with her at the teacher table. Is there something going on at home that prevents the student from getting the attention and affection needed at home? There is a reason he is reaching for attention in his school environment, and the counselor will have the time to figure out the reason.
