Can he talk about this? If so, what does he say 'bugs him'?
Do you know if he has any other difficulties (i.e. social, sensory processing, speech etc.)?
I would tend to think that not drawing attention to it would be a good plan (fall is not that far off) unless the teachers are getting frustrated. If they are managing o.k., it might be fine to let him ride it out until the next change.
Another idea is to make up a story that resembles his situation, but with a more positive outcome. For example, "Tommy the turtle had a hard time at school because he......(didn't like the noise, felt like being alone, etc.) He tried misbehaving, but he just got in trouble. Then one day he figured out he could tell his teacher when he felt "x" and ever since then he has been feeling better. Now he likes going to school." In this way you are talking about the problem without really talking about HIM. He could make up parts of the story, add to it, etc.
It's a tough problem for sure.
