Holyfield, C., Light, J., McNaughton, D., Caron, J., Drager, K., Pope, L. (2018, July). Effect of VSDs with dynamic text in social interactions on single word reading in adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
- Unfortunately, many adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who have limited speech do not have functional literacy skills and are often limited in their access to appropriate literacy instruction.
- Therefore, supports that supplement traditional instruction might be beneficial to these individuals.
- AAC technologies designed to promote literacy learning may be one supplemental support option.
This study investigated the effects of a VSD app with the Transition to literacy (T2L) feature used during social interactions on the single-word reading performance of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, limited speech, and early literacy profiles.
