Abstract: Math intervention studies involving children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) mainly involve students below 14-Years-Old and were focused on basic math skills like counting and computation. The aim of the present study is to teach to a 17-Years-Old boy with ASD advanced math skills like: algebra problems with exponential numbers, systems of linear inequalities, logarithmic inequalities. The target behavior is: say the correct rule and apply the rule on the exercise. A combination of precision teaching, script fading and least to most prompt is applied to teach the student to say the math rules and transfer the stimulus control from the scripts to the exercises. The treatment is delivered via telehealth during the COVID-19 lockdown. The multiple probe design shows an increase for all the math skills from a maximum of 38% of correct responses in baseline to a minimum of 95% in post training. Data on maintenance and generalization are showed.
