Hagiwara, Mayumi; Shogren, Karrie A.; Lane, Kathleen L.; Raley, Sheida K.; Smith, Steven A. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
The Self-Determined Learning Model of Instruction (SDLMI) is an evidence-based model of instruction implemented by a facilitator (e.g., general or special education teacher, family member, related service professional, transition professional) to enable students to learn to self-regulate problem solving in service to a goal. Students learn how to…

Jimenez, Bree A.; Besaw, Jessica – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Instructional technology is growing at rapid rates. In the field of mathematics, virtual manipulatives are a research-based tool that has shown to have a positive impact on students' mathematic achievement, as well as student engagement in learning. In an effort to extend the research, this study investigated the impact of virtual manipulatives,…

Snyder, Sara M.; Ayres, Kevin – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Curriculum-based measurement in reading (CBM-R) was developed in the 1980s and has been established as a valid means to measure students' progress towards acquiring reading skills in response to instruction (Ball & Christ, 2012). Efficiency of administration and cost-effectiveness add to the appeal of CBM-R. As a result, CBM-R is a popular…

Xu, Sheng; Lee, Gabrielle T.; Feng, Hua; Niu, Ruihua; Gilic, Lina; Shao, Weiting – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
The purpose of this study was to compare the efficiency of two prompt strategies (echoic versus echoic + picture) on establishing the intraverbal behavior (i.e., question answering) for three 4-year-old children with ASD in China. All three children had mand, tact, and echoic behavior in their repertoire, but had a limited intraverbal repertoire.…

Kim, Sunyoung; Trainor, Audrey A. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Multiple behavioral interventions for individuals with autism spectrum disorders have been established with adequate scientific evidence. Behavioral interventions, however, are cultural practices and often rely on home-school interactions for implementation. Little is known about intervention applicability and feasibility for cultural and…

Chou, Yu-Chi – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effectiveness of a three-phased self-directed model in enhancing the social problem-solving skills and the levels of self-determination of students with ASD. A total of 44 junior high school students with ASD were assigned to either an experimental group (n = 24) receiving the three-phased…

Leaf, Justin B.; Townley-Cochran, Donna; Cihon, Joseph H.; Mitchell, Erin; Leaf, Ronald; Taubman, Mitchell; McEachin, John – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Abstract: Punishment is any stimulus change following a response that decreases the probability of that response occurring in similar situations in the future. Punishment-based techniques (i.e., techniques developed based upon the functional definition of punishment) are effective at decreasing undesired behavior. Despite the documented…

Athamanah, Lindsay S.; Cushing, Lisa S. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Abstract: Many youths with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) lack the skills necessary to secure and maintain post-high school employment. One intervention that may improve vocational skills and social interactions for individuals with ASD in the work place is peer-mediated interventions. Peer-mediated interventions (PMI) have consistently…

Chapman, Suzannah M.; Ault, Melinda Jones; Spriggs, Amy D.; Bottge, Brian A.; Shepley, Sally B. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
A multiple probe across participants design was used to examine the effectiveness of a treatment package to teach students with moderate intellectual disability how to solve simple linear equations. The investigator read realistic scenarios of a problem, used actual items as manipulatives, presented a visual aid of the equation, and used a system…
