Hampshire, Patricia Korzekwa; Butera, Gretchen D.; Dustin, Timothy J.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v49 n5 p290-297 May 2014
For students with autism, homework time may be especially challenging due to problems in self-organization and difficulties generalizing skills from one setting to another. Although often problematic, homework can provide a valuable context for teaching organizational skills that become essential as students become more independent. By learning to self-manage, students develop a set of skills necessary for self-determination. This article describes the process for developing an intervention plan for students who may be struggling to complete homework successfully.
