What do you do for kids that simply won't do homework? I have a boy on my caseload who simply never does it. His teacher doesn't assign a lot, and the bulk of his homework is to read for 20 minutes. I know reading is hard for him, but he REALLY needs the practice. I can tell a HUGE difference the next day when he starts reading his book, on the few days that he has practiced. I make a big deal out of it and point out how nice it is to really know all the words and feel confident about reading the book once you've practiced. I send home books on his level for him to read (rather than grade level material that is several years above his head), so it's not that the text itself is undecodable or too hard for him. His parents are supportive of me and his gen ed teacher, but they both work 3 jobs and he if often at home with his older siblings who don't enforce doing the homework. On the few days I can tell he's practiced, I ask him who read with him and it's always a time where mom or dad happened to be home. I do tell him that he can always read by himself or to his brother or sister, and even tried to talk to both of the older siblings (they are just out of hs) about it when they came in to drop him off at various times throughout the school year. In general, we have the policy that homework that isn't done has to be completed at recess. However, this student has SEVERE adhd. He needs to move around and get in that play time or he simply won't be able to do a thing the entire afternoon, which to me is a bigger deal (him getting nothing out of the afternoon) than missing the 20 minutes of reading. However, with no consequence, how do we get him to care about doing it? We even tried a little sticker chart last year for days he did the homework, and rewards for certain steps, but it didn't seem to make a difference.
