Asperger's Syndrome and Time Management

  1. 1. Autism Spectrum DisordersTips & Resources Tip Sheet 18 Asperger’s Syndrome and Time Management Keep Track of Homework Assignments 1. Get a calendar or planner that allows you to view one full month at a time. 2. Write all work related to your studies in this calendar. 3. Put the calendar somewhere where you will see it everyday at home. 4. Carry a memo pad to school each day. Write down all test dates and homework assignments on this pad. Make sure that you do this as soon as you hear about them...otherwise you might forget. 5. Add these to your calendar when you get home from school. 6. Make sure that you write the assignments and test dates down under the due date...not the date on which you were told about them! 7. Sometimes the work for an assignment must be divided into separate stages. In this case write each stage separately on your calendar un the appropriate dates. This will help you plan your time better for larger assignments and projects. Keep Track of Available Time 1. Divide your time into the following segments: • Routine activities (eating, grooming etc.) • Sleeping • "Free" Time (available for studies, hobbies etc.) • Time Spent at School 2. Plot your weekly routine on a graph 3. You will use this graph and the monthly calendar that you just created to make a detailed time schedule. Create a Schedule 1. Choose a time of day to set aside for homework. You will need to decide how to divide your time between studying, fun and relaxation activities. 2. By looking at your calendar you will remember what you need to do that day for homework. 3. By looking at your graph you will see when you have time available for homework. 4. Decide when you will do your homework. Mark it down on your graph. This will help you remember. 5. If you follow this schedule it will become a habit and will be much easier to continue. 6. WARNING: Try not to put homework after time allotted to do something that you enjoy. You might have a hard time stopping doing something fun to do something like homework. Instead...reward yourself for time spent doing homework by following it with something fun.Rev.0612Prepared by: The TAP Service Center at The Hope Institute for Children and Families www.theautismprogram.org
