Rerun Speaks – Actually, Repeats

After months of working with Rerun on his assignments, I have learned how he verbally stalls to give cover for himself (thanks, ADHD) – he is constantly rephrasing the last thing you just asked him.  All.  The.  Time.

Today, working with his paraeducator on a writing assignment…

Her: “Rerun, you have to say this in your own words. So how is nuclear energy created?”

Rerun: (five second pause) “You’re asking how nuclear energy is created.”

Me: “Rerun, it’s in your notes.”

Rerun: “It’s in my notes?”

He is essentially Emmet from The Lego Movie: “I think I got it, but just in case, tell me the whole thing again – I wasn’t listening.
