Abstract
This project team is developing a prototype of the Planning Execution Assistant and Trainer (PEAT), an application (app) for mobile phones and tablets to provide cues and support to non-verbal students with ASD in special education settings. Students will carry and use iPhones at all times as part of this intervention, both in and out of school. PEAT will support students in achieving greater independence and self-reliance. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, the product can be used by service providers, and students are engaged by the prototype.
