From his parents' point of view
- He is extraordinarily difficult to manage at home
- They are worried about his lack of friends
- He is potentially dangerous to himself and others
- He needs to be ready for intermediate
- Happy, calm and growing
From the viewpoint of his peers
- He can be frightening (and irrational)
- He is distracting and annoying
- He interrupts their learning
From my viewpoint
- He is often isolated because others don't want to have anything to do with him
- He uses a lot of my focus, energy and time - both in and out of class time
- He leaves a trail of his belongings anywhere. He often has no equipment.
- He is opposed to writing ANYTHING.
- He doesn't see himself as an effective learner
- He interrupts frequently and loudly
- He struggles to deal with not getting his own way
- He tells untruths to make himself look better / impressive
- He is quick to anger
- He has very low confidence
- He frequently focuses on irrelevant matters
- He seems to have no desire to be 'one of the group'
- He is disobedient when he doesn't do what he wants to do
- If he hasn't taken his tablet, he becomes quite feral; hissing, screeching, attacking others
- He affects the learning of the rest of the class
This quite a list. I really want to help Ashton, but priorities will need to be set.
