    Gee I wish I knew, I have one at home like that....only thing that works is teaching the students they can control their anger and behavior and they cannot control the behavior of others. Maybe a system of rewards will work, not even a day without problems, how about starting at 15 mins without problems? Then they progress to more points, which they can turn in for a prize (candy if your school still allows it)

    Try posting this on the special ed board too, someone will give you an answer better than mine
