I need some suggestions for my 7 yr old son. He is at this time undiagnosed, but having some behavior issues in 2nd grade. He is academically capable of doing his work but just does not want to, so the teacher says. When I ask him he says he doesnt know what to write about (the majority of the issues are regarding journal writing or creative writing activites). He just refuses to write and instead bothers other students. When corrected, he will shut down instead of explaining the issue. If a group is disruptive the majority proclaim their innocence, he says NOTHING, and gets the blaim. He will not speak up about any need for help, unfairness he just shuts down and the school says this is a behavior (non compliant) problem. I dont know how to make him talk to them. I practice role plays at home, but apparently they dont go to school with him. They did a FBA on him and are talking about him needing to move to an 8:1:1 class. He is VERY verbal at home and with his friends at school, but just shuts down when confronted with a correction or reprimand. If he is corrected for misbehavior early in the day...the WHOLE day is done for him. He cant recover from it for hours sometimes and I dont know what this is or why. The teacher used to say he was just immature and doing it for attention, but if anyone here has other ideas I would very much appreciate it.
