Upsetting Classmates
I have a student that is a behavior problem. I am working with him, his parents, and administration to keep him on track. However, he has recently taken up taking other students things, touching their bookbags/books, and sometimes even flicking them on the ear. I have tried to stop this behavior with school wide discipline procedures, but it is not working. I have recently had a parent request that their student be removed from my class because of the other student. She made it clear to my administration that it wasn't because of me, but that the other student disrupts her student's learning. I am sad about the student being moved, I really enjoy him. How can I stop the disruptive student from bothering my other students?

The first thing I would do is ask the parents to sit in on your class. It sounds like everyone is in agreement that there is a problem, so maybe having a parent in the room will let the student know you are all on the same page and may improve the behavior (if only for the time they are in the classroom). I would also try rewarding the student for not doing the behaviors that are disrupting the other students. If a student is willing, it might be a good idea to facilitate a conversation between this student and someone he is bothering. This might help him understand how his actions are impacting others.

Getting the parents involved is a great way to show the kids you mean business.

Having the parent sit in the classroom is a good thing. However, from experience, the student will not behave in the way they usually do. Maybe you should get it approved to have a camera placed in your class for a day. Don't tell the students about it, and just see what happens. This way the parents and administration can see what is truly happening.

The camera is a great idea and would show the true nature of the situation but just make sure this is all handled legally .

Is there anyone in the school the student has a good realtionship with? Like a teacher or support staff that could be used as an outlet for staying on task and earning points? I have been that person in the past who a couple of students come see at the end of the day if they reach the set points made by the teacher and student. It gave them a goal. Now this wasn't met everyday to come see me but for the most part it was successful.

I think it is important to focus on the positives in the classroom. Reward the student for making good choices and keeping hands to himself. Set up a chart or reward system using a currency that he is responsive to. For example, using an iPad for five minutes or sitting in a special seat in the classroom. See what works and what he responds well to. It is not about what is fair and equal in the classroom as the student has different needs. Keep focusing on the positives and if the student is touching others then the this should be documented and handled based on school policy.

Consider involving the OT for possible sensory issues. I would begin the RTI process for behavior concerns if you have not already done so.
