Improving Problem-Solving Performance of Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Yakubova, Gulnoza; Taber-Doughty, Teresa
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v32 n1 p3-17 Mar 2017
The effectiveness of a multicomponent intervention to improve the problem-solving performance of students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) during vocational tasks was examined. A multiple-probe across-students design was used to illustrate the effectiveness of point-of-view video modeling paired with practice sessions and a self-operated cue sheet to solve problems encountered during vocational tasks. Following intervention, all students improved performance and generalized problem-solving skills to a second untrained setting. Three of four students maintained performance at a 6-week follow-up. Overall, evidence indicated that students with ASD could learn to engage in problem solving independently following the intervention.
