Some of the most challenging students I've had to teach have been those with Oppositional-Defiant Disorder. These are the students who challenge the behavioral norms in the classroom, often show low academic achievement, and lack motivation. Thankfully, there is plenty of research behind teaching these tough nuts to crack and lots of resources out there
Oppositional Defiant Disorder behavior chart: this chart gives a visual of how ODD works with a person. It can help you understand the different aspects of ODD and it is visually appealing for Aidan so he can take a look at it and you can go over it with him.
"Teens test boundaries, make mistakes and sometimes have little respect for their parents. Teens with ODD experience these normal teenage behaviors but may have a harder time living with them. Sometimes ODD can lead to a more severe disorder known as Conduct Disorder. Left untreated and combined with other personality disorders, oppositional defiant disorder may lead to a lifetime of behavioral complications and personality disorders." - ADDfreeSources: www.pinterest.com/addfreesources/
