There is a pressing need in today???s classrooms to provide intensive support for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Literature has suggested that self-management interventions can be helpful for students with ASD, but lack in naming what specific strategies these may be. This study assessed students self-managing their own schedules to increase task accuracy, fluency, and time on task. Data were collected over a 2 month period, in a single subject multiple baseline design during the academic school year. The results showed that the implementation of self-management interventions does increase time on task and task accuracy. Implications and limitations for future research are discussed.
