I created for him a chore chart with clip art pictures (from a 500,000 clip art set)to give him visual cues about his chores. For example I found a found a clip art of an overflowing laundry hamper and titled it "when your hamper is full bring it to the laundry room". Now he won't have to ask me "how full do you mean?". I found clip art for getting dressed, setting an alarm clock, brushing teeth, taking his meds, taking a shower, reading a book, taking out the trash, etc.
As a reward method for her son, my girlfriend uses marbles to symbolize a completed chore. Each marble is worth 10 cents and they can earn up to a dollar a day. When her son is done with his chore he puts the marble in the done jar (she bought 50 marbles and empties the jar every week). Every Sunday they count the marbles in the jar, then he gets his money. We borrowed this idea.
This method seems to be working for both kids (the other kid does not have AS), so I though I would pass it along.
