So we recently got a new student in our grade level. This child isn't in my class but is in the class next door. This child is supposed to be on some sort of medication (the school is not sure which right now) but is currently not on it and probably won't get back on it for a while. When the child is not on medication he screams for hours on end, crawls on the floor, flicks the lights on and off, kicks the teacher or any other person who approaches, throws things and refuses to do any kind of work. The teacher next door spends hours teaching from her doorway so as to block him from running out of the room and down the hall. Whenever the office does get involved, they only take the child and bribe him with toys and treats and anything to get him to calm down. Right now we feel that they are only making it worse. It's like they're rewarding his tantrums. The teacher is receiving no other support besides that. I can hear the screaming through my classroom walls and it's very disturbing to everybody in our hallway. So my question is, what would your school do in a situation like this? How would they support the child and the teacher? I just know that there is a solution to this problem, but I don't know what it is. It can't continue like this. Nobody in my hallway can take it, especially that teacher and her class. Any advice is very welcome.
