Student Doesn't Want to Go to Class

I have a student that is receiving services for SLD in reading. His behavior is fine in reading but in math he has been blatantly disrespectful. He sleeps in class, tells people he hates the teacher, hates the class. I am meeting with the math teacher and the student tomorrow to come up with solutions to this issue but I was wondering if you have any thoughts. He comes to my room during math and tells me he is not going or he wanders the halls. What can I do?

Does he have the same teacher for math as reading? Has the gen. ed. teacher reached out to him? Does he like you better than the math teacher? ....

Is this an area of weakness for the student? That was my first thought. It might be embarrassing for him to acknowledge this?

No, it is a different teacher. He is in 7th grade.

I think that is part of it but we are short on para support and he doesn't have a disability in math so there is no support in his IEP for math.

SLD in reading only

Why isn't he in an math class with para support? Even though he does not qualify for math specifically (I assume) under SLD, there is reading in math classes. Maybe it's the reading rather than the actual math that is discouraging him.

That's a nice thought. I wish I could get him support. We don't have enough resources in our school. Grr!
