We’ve been getting calls from the little boy’s school reporting that he is hitting other students and even his teacher, walking out of class and talking disrespectfully.
He’s 5 but his command of expressive language, though it’s way better than it was before, is still not at the point where he can really tell us why he’s doing these things.
I suspect part of it has to do with him being bullied by his sister who is 19 months older than her little brother, especially on weekends when they’re not away from each other.
Now, these behaviors have only been recent in the last two weeks or so and before that, maybe a month before, we changed his IEP to increase his kindergarten time since he was doing so well in pre-k and was so far ahead of the other kids in that class.
Since he does have some delays, he’s in a combination pre-k/kinder program for this year.
do you have any suggestions on how to address what is becoming a weekly, if not daily occurrence?
