Hi, I'm a grade 2 teacher from Ontario. In September I will have a student in my class who has asperger's syndrome. He is above average in all subjects but is quite disruptive in class. His behavior includes arm flapping, speaking out and distracting others. He generally is a nice little boy but he has a big problem socially. He talks very close to other students and has no friends because his behavior is so different. I would really like to help this student so that others will be more accepting of him. I've read several articles on directly teaching children with asperger's how to communicate properly with other students. I'm wondering what techniques other teachers have used and if they were successful.
