Dunkel-Jackson, Sarah M.; Dixon, Mark R.; Szekely, Susan
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v6 n1 p65-72 Jan-Mar 2012
The emerging era of "evidence-based practice" emphasizes that human service agencies need to find effective and efficient means of training staff and implementing systems change based on scientific evidence. Additional advancements in technology use across populations and settings within the field have also served as a catalyst for the development of contemporary staff training techniques. Therefore, the purpose of the current study was to train management-level staff employed at an agency for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders to collect agency-wide data using personal digital assistant (PDA) data collection systems.
