A Dual Rating for On Task Awareness is the use of simple rating scale for both teacher and student to complete independently regarding a specific student behavior. The goal is for the rating scores to match which demonstrates that a student is becoming more aware and realistic about their in class behavior. The rating is scored and when a match is perfect the student gets a reward. There is also the option for the student to still get a reward if a certain criterion is met rather than a perfect match. This is recommended and as the student gains skills, the criteria can be tightened.
I have been a one on one aide for a student with high functioning autism for 3 years and now that he is in 6th grade, I am really trying to back off with my support because he may not have an aide in middle school. He still needs a lot of reminders from me to stay on task or get back on task. Is there anything I can do to help him become more aware of how off task he can be other than constant prompts from me or the teacher?
