Abstract:

This project will develop the iPrompt software, for use with iphones and ipdads. Teachers will employ the tool with flexible and unobtrusive strategies to support students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The main features of the iprompt are the Video Modeling Library and the Community Media Library, a teacher’s professional development manual, and video Modules to support teacher use of the software. Tools include picture schedules, visual countdown timers, and choice prompts to help set expectations, ease transitions between activities, increase attention to tasks, and develop social skills. Phase I work will develop a prototype of the intervention.
