Mechling, Linda C.
Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, v46 n4 p479-498 Dec 2011
Use of portable electronic devices by persons with moderate intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorders is gaining increased research attention. The purpose of this review was to synthesize twenty-first century literature (2000-2010) focusing on these technologies. Twenty-one studies were identified which evaluated use of: (a) handheld computers; (b) cellular phones; and (c) MP3 players across various skills and settings to assist persons with disabilities. Guidelines and recommendations for instruction and future research are provided. (Contains 1 table and 7 figures.)
