Does anyone have any experiences, good or bad, of a school using an individual reward scheme for their child (with an ASC)? How did it work?
Things are going to pieces for my lovely boy, age 7 (Aspergers), in his first year of mainstream juniors, despite having a full-time 1:1. Last year of infants was amazing - fully integrated, valued member of the class. Nothing was passed on, we are back to square one. They have been trying a reward scheme at my insistence (they were being so negative) but things have become eve worse. It turns out the scheme is ridiculously demanding for him. Meeting with the Head and SENCO tomorrow!
I have tended to agree a few things that need attention with the 1:1. Then the 1:1 ticks the list (maybe 3 or four 4 things) if these have been met and I reward/reinforce at home. Eventually we'll move onto a school internal system, but at the moment I don't think staff have the expertise to create a system that is achievable and sufficiently motivating.
I guess they don't either amunt, and I was probably expecting too much of them. I should have made it clearer I meant something along the lies of what you described. I have tried to point out issues with system but they have insisted they don't want to make things too easy for him.
He now has a star sticker chart where he has to fully complete 5 pieces of work per day....if he does she gives him a Pokemon bookmark ( she made them herself different one each day)... If he does extra work he is given a Pokemon card at end of day ( I provided). He isn't really involved with the class reward system as most things he just cannot do sit quietly on carpet...etc
