This is specifically for that person out there who teaches Montessori, but other responses are welcome, too.

I think you need to give him a goal to meet. 'His goal is to master this piece by 3.15.12' for example. That way he has a timeline which he can stay on to meet his goal. I know when I took piano my teacher would note in my music book that I had to learn up to 'this point' by the next lesson.

How old is the child? In the special ed room I sub in sometimes the teachers use clocks/timers. It's not easy keeping those kids engaged and a lot of the time they'd rather have "break" than do a job, They are only allowed breaks in 5-8 min intervals and they are reminded of how much break time is left by showing them the countdown on those clocks...... Would something like that work?
