I forgot to add that children do tend to get restless at this time of year. Everyone (including teachers) are looking ahead to school ending and getting the summer off. An OT mentioned to me the other day that she always sees an increase in challenging behaviors during the springtime.

Try to think of anything your son really likes that can be given as a reinforcer after completing his work. Also, a visual schedule may be helpful in keeping your son focused.
