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.…

Although the right to vote is guaranteed for all U.S. citizens of voting age, a significant number of adults with intellectual disability do not vote. The purpose of the present study was to replicate a previous study conducted by Agran, MacLean, and Kitchen-Andren (2015), which examined the extent to which adults with intellectual disability in a…

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…

Bouck, Emily C.; Maher, Courtney; Park, Jiyoon; Whorley, Abbie – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Fractions are foundational concepts for more advanced mathematics as well as used throughout daily living, for all students, including students with disabilities. This study explored the virtual-abstract (VA) instructional sequence with regard to the acquisition and maintenance of fraction behaviors for three middle school students with mild…

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…

Hugh, Maria L.; Johnson, LeAnne D.; Fleury, Veronica P. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Though increasing the teaching of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) within pre-service preparation programs is one approach to addressing the need for increased use of EBPs in the field, this approach likely oversimplifies the problem. We surveyed 60 pre-service practitioners' decision-making around…

Bowman, Jessica A.; McDonnell, John; Ryan, Joanna; Coleman, Olivia Fudge; Conradi, Lyndsey Aiono; Eichelberger, Carrie – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Current research on teaching mathematics to students with intellectual disability (ID) has demonstrated that, given evidence-based instruction, these students can acquire a wide range of skills. However, very little research has been conducted in inclusive general education (GE) classrooms and no studies have utilized the GE teacher as the…

Wright, John C.; Knight, Victoria F.; Lemons, Christopher J.; Lindstr├Âm, Esther; Strauss, Julia – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
There is a lack of research on effective interventions to improve the early numeracy skills of children with severe disabilities---autism spectrum disorder, developmental disability, and intellectual disability---and complex communication needs. While preliminary research suggests the Early Numeracy curriculum is effective for teaching children…

Allor, Jill H.; Yovanoff, Paul; Otaiba, Stephanie Al; Ortiz, Miriam B.; Conner, Carlin – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
The importance of helping all children make meaningful progress in reading development is supported by legislative mandates and court rulings. The purpose of this research was to describe findings from a series of single-case design studies completed over three years to test the effects of a specific comprehensive literacy intervention, Friends on…

Schwartz, Rachel J.; Robertson, Rachel E.; Westerfield, Sarah – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Opportunities for choice often become limited as individuals with disabilities age. Previous research reports that staff practices directly influence choice-making opportunities for adults with disabilities. Given the link between choice-making and staff behavior, more research is needed on training staff in postsecondary settings in providing…
