Been there done that!!
We had it put into his IEP that he gets help with this. They had to come up with a sign in sheet, that everyone had to sign. It stated that the teacher would make out a
weekly sheet with homework that is due that week, when he finished his homework, the student and the parent would sign it or the resource teacher would sign it ( who ever helped or supervised him doing it). then it would be put into a special folder and turned into the teacher, who then signs it. This is alot of extra work, but if the student is rewarded for a weekly prize, it will get easier on everyone and just becomes habit. The student will eventually catch on and when given incentives to do this on his own, it will be easier on the student which is what everyone needs to stress.
It is ultimately up to the Resource Teacher to make sure the student has a few different ways to help the
student thru this. We have dealt with this for the last 2 yrs and after trying so many different things, we finally find one that worked. He eventually got tired of trying different ones and gave us his imput and the Resource Teacher came up with a compromise version and it worked very well.
Hope this helps even a little! My son is now in High School and is doing wonderful!!
