I would set out to find the reason for this student'a behavioral problems and then work from their. I would also come up with some sort of system to help the student take ownership in his or her behavior.
I would first try to create a classroom environment that would defer any possible behavior problems. Such as keeping students engaged and actively learning. I would utilize any resources for behavior management while using the PBIS method. I would try to figure out why the child was having a consistent issue by looking at where and when the problems occur. IS there a particular student they are with when problems happen, is it during a specific activity, or is the problem all over the spectrum. If the problem was persistent after my attempts in the classroom I would contact the parents to see if there is any change in their environment at home that could be the source. I would work with the parent to come to a solution as to how we can help their child succeed.

Will motivate child in their way to make them behave properly.
Try to determine if there is a reason for the misbehavior. Give the student a chance. If behavior continues I would think about asking the counselor if there was anything going on or big changes in the home. It may require a phone call home. Ask another teacher to observe and get their opinion on the what they think.
I would come up with some sort of behavior plan or reward system to promote good behavior.
