Ah, ok, does she have a therapist or doctor who is familiar with her condition that you can talk to? They may have some suggestions.

yes we have tried that and nothing seems to work. they tried stickers but she eats them they tried moving her off to the side and it just got worse. she has on-set childhood schizophrenia which makes her talk to her self but they don't seem to take that in to consideration. and she is a very look at me kinda kid if u r paying more attention to another kid she will act up just to draw the attention and if u ignore her she goes in to screaming fits.

Hmmm, my daughter does too. Not sure how to switch it off. I wish I had a manual sometimes......just wanted to let you know you are not alone.

Not sure what you have tried, but I am assuming the teacher has tried a reward chart? I know my daughter responds pretty well to rewards. It won't stop her ALL the time, but it may make her more conscious of her behaviour and able to regulate it when she is reminded about the reward chart.

LOL she talks so much I've listened to her have full conversations in her sleep. whether shes alone or with others she just never stops!

I have one of those. When you find the solution, can you let me know? Although admittedly, while it is a common thread on her school reports, she isn't THAT bad at school. Does she talk when she sits by herself?
