I would suggest you ask the student's spec ed teacher if she sees the student rushing in her classroom as well. You might get a strategy from the teacher that works for this student. Also, just asking, "Hey, do you see this in your room too? I'm trying to figure out what will work for her..." might in a subtle way get the teacher to notice and address it in her classroom when she sees it too. Since the classroom teacher sees the student much more frequently than you, her work with the student on this will reap much more progress quicker than your one hour a week will.
There was one particular student I worked with in my art classroom that rushed through her lesson but had a number of other struggles as well. I ended up buying a plastic lidded shoebox and filled it with supplies just for her. I also made a sketchbook (gathered white drawing paper together with a plastic book comb) and had some handouts copied out just for her. When the student came into the classroom and she finished her lesson, I had already placed the plastic box at her seat so she opened it up and explored what she could do next. I would put one handout inside her sketchbook each week. She was working at a Kinder level so the worksheets were about identifying shapes and colors. I would never normally have that kind of worksheet available, but it was a good fit in this case.
Hope this helps!
