Holyfield et al. (2018) Poster

  • 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.
