Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex neurological disorder that affects 1 in 68 individuals (Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014). Autism is characterized as deficits in social skills, verbal and non-verbal communication, and challenging behaviors. The number of participants with autism in a general education classroom has increased. Self-Management is an easy way to increase on-task behavior in classrooms. The purpose of this study was to increase the on-task behavior of three participants in Transition Support Services (TSS) using a self-management package and to generalize the skill to at least one other setting (i.e., inclusion classroom, IBI classroom or community). Data were collected using 10 seconds momentary time sampling for 5 minutes. A multiple baseline design across participants was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the self-management treatment package. The intervention was conducted during homework time in the participant’s home. The results of the study showed increase in on-task behavior for all three participants.
