    Asperger's Syndrome
    By Stephanie Ludwig

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Hello! I work with a 4th grade boy who is AI. Something that has worked for us is a visual checklist without pictures that has as much of the classroom routine on it as possible. We break down this list for a.m. and p.m. At the end of the day if all things have been checked off he has earned something. This reward can be determined by you or you and the student. (For example we are working for ice cream and each day he picks a letter that he wants to work for such as I. If he completes his checklist completely that day he earns his I. When he gets Ice cream spelled he will get the reward of an ice cream bar.) Some other things that have really helped us are using timers. We use these to keep him on task. (I set the timer for 5 minutes and then tell him get 10 math problems completed before the timer expires.) Make sure that you use as little verbal communication as possible. This was a hard lesson for me to learn because he seems to understand just like everyone else. He is very smart he just cannot process the information at the rate in which it's given

    I hope some of this helps.
