Examining the Effectiveness of an iPod Touch with Video Prompts to Teach Community Based Vocational Tasks to Students with Intellectual Disabilities and Autism
Huntington, Angela A.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Illinois State University
Three student employees with intellectual disabilities and autism used an iPod touch with video prompts to increase their level of independence at work. Using the iPod, they each experienced an increase in correct task completion across three work tasks. In addition, I conducted a social validation study to determine if employers and job coaches felt that the use of technology was effective and appropriate for the student employee. They all agreed or strongly agreed that the tool with the video prompts was effective and appropriate. Most importantly, the student employees reported that they liked using the tool and being independent at work, with one participant reporting an added benefit of helping her stay on task and be socially appropriate.
