Have a student who repeatedly through the day says " you said>>>. and when the other student says "No, I said>>>>>"
first student will say "I heard you say>>>>" several times. Having explained often that we can misunderstand etc., I just want a quick reply to remind her and stop the arguing. She does this with adults as well. I don"t think there is a hearing impairment, but they will be checking all students shortly.

Welcome to the board! I'm honestly not sure how to answer your question. Are you thinking is a mental health issue causing the student to misconstrued what is being said to her? How close are the things she's saying? Is it a problem of her literally interpreting things incorrectly or do you think she's purposefully playing games? If it's the latter, I would just keep saying whatever you say to end conversations. If it's the former, I'd try to set her up with the school psych or school counselor. Good luck! Maybe others will have something to add.

There is no one answer to this question and the teacher response is varied based on student needs. You need to look at what the classroom setting is like. We also need to look at why the student is engaged in this behavior. Additionally we need to look at the what the teacher and other students are doing. Grade, age, and ability level all play factors as well.

Here are some questions you can answer for us to help you more.

What is the function on the behavior? (why is the student engaged in the behavior)
Is this student avoiding a task, wanting to get attention, the task is too easy or too hard?
What is the setting this student is in?
Is this in an academic classroom or is this in elective?
What grade level is the student?
Is the student on an IEP?
Is the behavior unsafe?
What is the classroom rules?
What is the teacher doing when this is going on?
What are the other students doing when this is going on?

I have a question: Is it relevant for us to know the age of your student?
