Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. Please note, this is not therapy, but information. I do hope I can help you though. It sounds as if you have tried everything you know to try. At a glance, it sounds more involved than just a need for behavior modification though. Could you give me more details on his behavior? How is he otherwise developmentally? How does he perform academically? Any details as far as history and such might be helpful. Thank you!
