Tips for redirecting kindergarteners?
Working one on one with a kindergartener all next week who needs constant redirections that are "disguised" AKA I cannot tell this student "focus" or "pay attention" as these are trigger words. The teacher is unable to share much information with me due to FERPA and has not found a method that works for them yet. This student does not have a regular paraeducator but teacher/admin/parents are pushing district to consider the option.

Anyway... does anybody have any "tips" or "tricks" I could use?

Thank you,

This board doesn't get a lot of action. I'm sorry you did not get a response to your post. I forget to check this board most of the time myself. I am a teacher, currently working as a para. Should you post again and don't get a response private message me to check the para board and I will be happy to try to respond. I know what it is like to want advice from other paras, or teachers for that matter. Also, paras are allowed to post to other boards on Proteacher if that helps.

I, too, would be happy to help. Haven't been on this board before. I have been a gen. ed. and sped teacher, currently a para.
