I got a new student in my first grade classroom this week who has severe ADHD. Her mother has told the school that she is having trouble getting the dr to get the necessary meds for her. The days were spent this week getting her to stay in her seat. She is very disruptive and does not listen 9 times out of 10. She wanders around the room and often lays on the floor making noises. She is very low functioning (as she does not know letters, can not write her name, does not listen to class discussions, etc). She is pulled from the room to go with the resource room teacher 30 minutes in the morning, 30 in the afternoon, OT, PT and speech once to twice a week. These pullouts only make it harder to settle back down to the quietness of our classroom. :help:I am at a loss at what to do in just a week's time. I guess I don't understand what the holdup of the meds are and what I can do for the time being. Several teachers have told me about setting a timer for every 5 mintues and putting up a sticker if she is on task. After so many stickers, a reward is earned. I have never had to do this with a student before in my 7 years teaching first grade. Any other ideas out there? Thank you so much!!!
