A child I’m working with has major oppositional defiant problems, and is also on the spectrum. He disrupts my class constantly. We’ve done reward charts and behaviour charts and he just doesn’t care. I’m at my wits end.
Do you have any advice for managing girls’ conflict in my Year 5 class. They are always having arguments which end in tears. They are always pairing off, and talking about each other behind backs.
