Computer-Based Video Instruction to Teach Students with Intellectual Disabilities to Use Public Bus Transportation
Mechling, Linda; O'Brien, Eileen
Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v45 n2 p230-241 Jun 2010
This study investigated the effectiveness of computer-based video instruction (CBVI) to teach three young adults with moderate intellectual disabilities to push a "request to stop bus signal" and exit a city bus in response to target landmarks. A multiple probe design across three students and one bus route was used to evaluate effectiveness of the CBVI program. All instructional sessions occurred in simulation with generalization and maintenance measures conducted in-vivo on a public bus route. Results indicate that CBVI was an effective means for creating a simulation to teach the bus route to all three students. Students were able to generalize the skill to the actual bus route with no in-vivo instruction. Maintenance measures further indicate that students were able to maintain the skill across time.
