Need suggestions to maybe help me with student with extreme work/school avoidance! I am not using that word lightly. The student is on an IEP, and BRTI plan, check in, check out schedule. Nothing is working. It seems the more we try, the stronger the behavior becomes.

Apologize for my ignorance ... what's a "BRTI plan, check in, check out schedule"?

Other schools probably call them something else. BRTI is a behavior response to intervention plan. Maybe my school made them up? The student has a schedule of the places he needs to be and each adult has to check off if he made it there and if he worked and stayed.

Thanks for clarification.
Can you describe examples of behavior - socializes, tunes out, backtalk etc. ? Also, when and where do behaviors seem to be most prevalent - transitions, independent practice, direct instruction, individual help etc. ? What are peer relationships like?
What have you tried thus far?

Thanks for the reply. I donít think there really is anything more we can do but what we have been doing. I can make it through until June.

Do you have power to take away any privileges? I'm sure I'll get flamed for this, but at our private school, when I have a student who won't work, I ask the parents ahead of time if they are ok with me sending the student late to lunch. Then I arrange for someone to take the rest of the class to lunch and I keep the non-working student. In a very neutral voice I tell them that when they finish 5 problems or 2 sentences or whatever, then we'll go to lunch. They are astonished and it works every time.

Now, I know I'm going to be flamed, but what I'm trying to discern with this approach is if the student can actually get work done when they really, really want to. Once that's been established, then I know how to proceed.

Just FYI, they will get lunch, they just might have to eat with a different grade and they might miss their middle recess.

That's what I've done. I'm sure many will have an issue with it, but isn't a delayed lunch better than allowing a student to slow walk their education and fail to meet their potential?

No flames here. I've done that before - without calling parents.
