AbstractThis project team will develop a web-based product to engage 11th and 12th grade high school students with HF-ASD in a self-paced online interactive course to learn about the transition to college, learn specific resilience strategies for coping with the transition to college, and to practice applying those strategies via participation in interactive simulated exercises. The exercises will include game-based animated scenes, role plays, and visualization tools. The software will provide individualized instruction that adjusts to the skill level of the user, personalized feedback on performance, and hints and cues for students who are struggling. A teacher management dashboard will provide professional development resources and reports on student performance.
