Thank you for your thoughts. Actually, I don't have any control over the plan put in place for this particular student. The behavior specialists and the special education teachers form the very specific plan that his associate has to carry out to the "t". They collect data on refusals and physical aggression..

It's interesting, this student has social skills time with the special education teacher first thing in the morning. I don't think he can answer why he doesn't want to take a break (or why he growls, screams, or throws and kicks things). Once his escalation has come back down from it's peak, he's one that can't verbalize what's happened.

My question was if anyone refers to "take a break" as something else for the REST of the class?? No one else has trouble taking a break to regain control. I can't interfere with the plan in place for this one child, but I can change my language with the rest of the class, if necessary.
