fuzzylogician Posted September 14, 2012 Share Posted September 14, 2012 So this is a somewhat sensitive situation, but I was wondering if anyone has ever had to deal with students with some kind of Autistic or similar disorder in a class you were teaching. I have a student who is probably some kind of genius is what he does and is also very interested in the material I teach, but unfortunately he often goes off on tangents or asks unrelated and/or too advanced questions that I cannot address in class. He constantly has his hand up to ask some kind of question and he certainly means well and is excited about what we're doing. He's not one of those students who just want to appear smart by asking complicated questions. I don't want to stifle his enthusiasm but on the other hand I need to think of the other students in the class, to whom I'm sure he is very distracting. Has anyone been in a similar situation in the past? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
