I have a student who loses it whenever asked to do anything. He will kick and hit walls. He will shout and cuss at adults. He will lunge at me and others. He is allowed to do this by his SPED teacher. It is getting scary for me because he is so unpredictable. I ask for help but the department doesn’t want to do anything different. What can I do? I’m so over fearing.
