Child with a loud voice..

Hello Everyone,

I have a boy in my Kindergarten class who has no sense of volume. There is no voice modulation knob...for him loud is...normal.
I remind him of his Outside Voice...finding his Inside Voice etc. etc...has anyone had a similar issue to deal with.......and found a successful solution?

I seem to have one or two kids like this each year. I model the volume they use and then I model the appropriate volume. I do this privately. It seems to help them figure out how to modulate.

Just in case, check for hearing issues.

My BIL is one of these and he has never figured it out. (Sorry, not encouraging)

I also seem to have one of these each year. This year the one I have has no filter and will say, "Why are you whispering." He really can't take the hint!

Good luck.

Thinking about it...the ones who whisper bother me more. Like...they don't have a normal speaking volume.

I had a child like that last year and I would make eye contact with him when he was being loud (or I'd move close to him so he could see me) and then motion down with my hands as a reminder to "turn down" his voice without me having to say anything. We also discussed noise levels and it helped to call his loud voice his "playground" voice and we referred to his inside voice as his "work time" or "whisper" or "friendly" voice.
It worked for us just fine. Now that he's in first grade, well.....
