Yelling!

I have a nine year old boy with Down syndrome who is constantly yelling and making noises in the class. It is extremely distruptive! I've tried all possibilities that I can think of- he really doesn't care about any rewards...

Is he hard of hearing? I am wondering if loud is all he can hear? Have you tried comfy headphones as ear coverings to see if it makes a difference?????? I am wondering about the hearing part.

You could try using a whisper phone. It amplifies the sound for the child and makes them more aware of how loud they are being. I also have sound protection headphones available for the other students so they can tune out the screamer. That way the distraction and attention is minimized.

Thanks for your answers. However, he can and does speak on a normal level, but he makes vocalizations like "ada", "ah", etc. His yelling is primarily sounds...
We actually just had an AT evaluation on friday for him, perhaps that will help him somehow!

caution on the whisper phone

Be sure you have parental permission to use the whisper phone! When I first started working with a "screamer" the aides had already been using one with him. My supervisor stopped by one day to observe and wanted to know if it was part of his behavior support plan because if it wasn't we could be in a lot of trouble! (Fortunately it was!)
