Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have difficulty maintaining employment, and there are few evidenced-based practices to guide professionals when developing employment skills among this population. The purpose of this study was to extend the literature on covert audio coaching (CAC) by examining its effects on high school students with ASD performing a job task. We used a multiple baseline design across participants. With the introduction of CAC, the participants' job task accuracy and fluency improved. Additionally, the participants' skills maintained for several weeks and showed preliminary evidence of effectiveness for the same task completed in a community-based worksite.
