Questioning sister's discipline skills of 17yr Asp.Aut. son

I am curious to see what other parents of Asperber's teens may do to discipline or correct their children's bad choices, judgement, behavior, etc. I beleive my sisters method always focuses on the negative by continously taking privileges of laptop, tv, and even attending church with his friends as "punishment". Are there any suggestions for a more postivie approach such as rewarding instead of punishing? It seems the only thing this 17 yr old boy is allowed to do most of the time is sit or lay on the couch and stare at the ceiling, thus leading to boredom and more bad behavior!!

My son and I have Asperger's. My goal is to share our gifts from this, rather than being discouraged about how we "don't fit in".
