Ask him to bring in a mystery bag. Tell him he should include items that describe him and his interests. Ask his RTI teacher about his hobbies. You make a mystery bag as well. Make sure you have somethings in common with your student.

Often these children are afraid of making a mistake in front of someone they do not know. See if he will engage in play acting, or pantomime. See if he likes sports. Find out about his favorite sports team and center a reading activity around that. Ask him to teach you! Put the books away and engage him in an interactive game using the smart board or tablet.

If you are able, take him outside and work on a skill. Often walking around in an open less confined area helps.

You are going to have to dig a little deeper with this child. Don't give up!!

Good Luck!
