Can you give him an extra task that

Clip to ScrapBook #2

forces a "break" in another way? When you see or hear him escalating, say "Student, please deliver these books to Mrs. NeighborTeacher/the library/the nurse/whoever." Just have it prearranged that when those books arrive, they are not taken by surprise. You could also do a short note of no consequence to the other party but some level of "work" or weight is supposed to be helpful. Also, phrase it as a request/command and not as a question so that he cannot refuse--the "no" response is not an option.

When he needs the next break, ask him to go get them back...


Depending on the distance and other factors, maybe the para can just observe from a distance so it builds in an opportunity for the student to perform the task independently, yet successfully.

Have a couple of those set up so he doesn't figure out any set pattern.
