I start a new job as IN SCHOOL SUSPENSION AIDE tomorrow. My charge is a 7 yr old undx/un-medication little boy. The principal spent an hour telling me (so I would be prepared) he is: 1. violent - has to be restrained (usually two people - the second helps to restrain but is also there as a witness. 2. "its never his fault" blames everything on others. 3. Extremely manipulative. 4. Shows no remorse. 5. Terrorizes the other children 6. Telling him "NO" sends him into a rage. 7. Doesn't care about others feelings. 8. Only one perspective - his. I'm obviously not a trained professional or they wouldn't be paying me $10,000 for the year. But, I would like to be a positive influence in this childs' life. I have found lots of information on ODD and CD but very little information on the "how to" relate effectively. I am VERY anxious about our first meeting tomorrow. I will be spending 7-8 hours, 5 days a week, with this child. I need some tips and lots of advice, QUICK!!! The school has sought advice from behavioral experts, counselors, etc... but a big part of the problem is the fact that the parents refuse to seek out help for the child. I expect to learn more about that soon (during interview, not being an employee, confidentiality rules were in effect). They seem to be okay with the status quo!!!??? Any insight, advice, tips on handling behavior, behavior modification techniques, etc.... would be greatly appreciated!!
