I am a second grade teacher with a student who is very low...is a DRA level 6. Anyway, I have noticed some strange things about this child. He likes to hug on me and the other kids quite a bit and I found out got in trouble for this in 1st grade. Well today I noticed that he smelled totally of poop. I asked him what that smell was and he told me he didn't know that he didn't smell anything. I finally sent him to the nurse because it got to be too much to handle and I was becoming naseous and other kids could smell it too. The nurse had him change and clean himself and sent him back to class. I asked him if he had an accident and he said no, he already did it. Yesterday he hugged me from behind and put his hands right on my chest. He also got in trouble for "spanking" on the bottom, another boy in my class. I feel like this behavior is strange. Would it be reasonable to suspect sexual abuse? Would a history of sexual abuse hinder a child's ability to learn?
