    Hi! That is a great question and it is important to be well prepared. The number one tip I can give you first and foremost is to be patient. It will be tough at times, but remember he/she has a difficult time controlling his/her behavior. Another suggestion is to give the student a small grid in which you can have him/her fill it with stickers everytime there is positive behavior. This will keep the studemt on track and focused. Since the student is in the upper grade, he/she can take responsibility for the grid and keep it in the desk or folder so it is not obvious to the class. Start with the grid and see how it goes. Remember to also make sure you discuss why the negative behavior is wrong.
