This sounds kind of harsh, but...

If a student is still so filled with fear that their ukemi skills are not getting better as time goes along it seems to me that there are more problems than just poor ukemi.

If the student has been practicing for some time (9 months to a year), most likely they should be spending their time with some other activity.

At some point the teacher has an obligation to tell the person that they should not spend any more of the teacher's or dojo mates practice time on their problem.
