I've learned that goals are huge. Constant reminder of the goal, a logical consequence, and a solid rewards system works really well with ASD students. I have not seen this implemented with ASD kids and academics but I have with an autistic student and a behavior goal that he set with his teacher. This goal setting method was very successful. The student had a goal of raising his hand when he wanted to speak. Each time the student raised his hand he got a tally and at the end of every day if the student had 5 tally marks the child could choose a reward from the options that him and his teacher had also come up with together. If the student spoke without raising his hand he was ignored, reminded of the rule, and told that he would not be responded to unless he raised his hand. The student did not perfect the skill but there was great improvement, and I think thats a huge success for both the teacher and the student!
