Help Me Help Him.
I have a DES student that is extremely low. I am currently in the process of fighting for him to be in a smaller, one on one placement. He is a wonderful boy, but he is so far behind grade-level and he is unable to read much (including sight words), that he needs one on one or very small group instruction in order to get anything done. With a class of 25 students, I just do not have the ability to teach everything one on one with him, and when I am not working with him he is just coloring or staring into space. I tried to put him on computer reading programs, such as Starfall.com, but he even has trouble working the computer on his own. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can more effectively reach this student?

I had a similar situation. I would enlist the help of your guidance counselor, instructional support team, and administration. Unfortunately, you cannot neglect the other 24 students in your class, whenever you can, spend the extra time with him.

You could request a parent volunteer or peer teacher student to come on just to help the student stay on track and help with his learning. This year I have used a high school student as support for my low student.

Do you have an ipad that could read to him and have him follow along with it? I am guessing it could be part of his IEP requirements if you wrote it in that way. There are multiple programs and games that could help that he could interact with and have him respond to that way and if you had it on a timer one of the students or you could check back in on him when it went off to make sure he is on task.

Group work is always a good go to, along with additional help from other school personnel.
