I have a student who was just diagnosed with Asperger's (finally!), and we are having trouble getting his behavior under control. He started medication last week, and the teacher (I'm one of 2 assistants in the room, reg ed) sees some improvement in his behavior some days, while I don't, maybe because I always saw him in a better light than she did, and now she's seeing what I saw before, and assuming it's the meds that are doing it. I find that taking him out of the room for a walk helps to calm him when he's out of control, but the teacher won't let us do that anymore, because she says it "doesn't help aspergers" (she seems to never be in the room right before or after the walk, and only sees us on the way back). She claims that the only thing we should do is have him do his deep breathing exercises and give him a book to read, but sometimes it doesn't work, although she claims it does. I find that very often he'll use the book to continue the behavior-as an example, today, he was walking around the room with his book, using it as an airplane, making noises and disturbing the other children's games in the process. Anyone have any ideas in how to get his behavior under control?
