Effects of Direct Instruction on Telling Time by Students with Autism
Thompson, Julie L.; Wood, Charles L.; Test, David W.; Cease-Cook, Jennifer
Journal of Direct Instruction, v12 p1-12 Sum 2012
This study used a single-subject multiple probe design to investigate the use of Direct Instruction (DI) to teach students with autism to tell time to the five-minute increment. Exercises from "Connecting Math Concepts" were used as the DI component during intervention. All students increased their telling-time skills to the five-minute increment with scores falling within the range of their same-age, typically-developing peers. Implications for future research and practice are discussed.
