Extreme measures  taken to control a frightened child  other forms of discipline should be tried first. Such methods that could work include talking to the student to let them know of the dangers or harm that they could cause. Time-outs but not in seclusion.  Telephone calls to the parent or a familiar voice always work for me. In most situations, getting a parent to the school as quick as possible to intervene can be helpful.  since they are aware of the methods that work best for the child’s behavior.
