Does anyone have any tips or are there any guide lines to help teach those with demand avoidance issues, or do teachers just not teach those that can not do what is asked?
I am teaching a boy, 8 years old who has been diagnosed in February, after having issues at school with behaviour.
He shows promise and is musical. Shows elements of true potential, reading notes well, sings back well however seems to have random meltdowns in lesson, doesn't want to play the scale asked.
The first exam coming up soon, so I have no idea if on examiners request the pupil will play the required scale or just play whatever they want, or meltdown in front of examiner?
Can anyone advise?
