I teach second grade. I have a boy who just sits most of the day. He doesn't socialize or mess around. He just sits. During center time, he might start 1 center but it is rare for him to finish anything. During group lessons he will have the appropriate materials in front of him (after many reminders from me), but he will not be on task. I have met with his parents several times and they say he has always been this way. They say his doctor cannot explain it and neither could his old school. (He repeated first grade in another school system.) What little I can get out of him seems to be close to grade level but he just doesn't care. I've tried rewards and punishments and nothing fazes him. The school psychologist observed him for a few minutes. His opinion is that it is an attitude issue and not any kind of learning disability, so there is no point in referring him to child study. I don't know what I think but I know that he is not progressing. Any ideas? Suggestions?
