If that paper has no mistakes, then the whole class will have a shorter (or no) warm-up the next day.
If a randomly selected paper is perfect, that student instantly is the class hero.
If there is open communication, the NT partner can help her Aspie to improve in areas of weakness and encourage him in the things he is naturally good at. Aspies often has a specific area of weakness in marriage.
If students aren’t paying attention or busy doing other things, get them focused by using nonverbal signals of disapproval. If in front of the class, continue with the lesson but walk toward the problem students and stop near their seats, while still teaching.

Although Aspies (i.e., people with Aspergers) do feel affection towards others, relationships are not a priority for them in the same way that it is for neurotypicals or NTs (i.e., individuals without Aspergers). An NT partner needs to understand her Aspie’s background in order to work with him on their marriage.
She will need patience and perseverance as well as understanding that he functions on a different emotional level to her. Aspies do marry, and while NT partners can be frustrated by their lack of emotion and physical contact, their Aspergers spouses do bring strengths into the relationship.
That means the lesson won’t be started, the lecture won’t begin, and nothing will be written on the overhead until everyone is in his or her seat paying attention.
