O’Neill, T., Light, J., & McNaughton, D. (2018, July). Video communication technology promotes participation in community activities by an adolescent with autism: Case study. Poster presented at the State of the Science Conference of the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Augmentative and Alternative Communication (RERC on AAC), Arlington, Va.
- AAC technologies improve communication outcomes for individuals with ASD who experience complex communication needs
- However, current AAC technologies often use static displays that fail to capture the dynamic routines that require communication during real-word activities.
- Also, current technologies that do use dynamic supports (e.g., video modeling apps) do not integrate communication supports.
- This study used videos with integrated VSDS to capitalize on the positive effects of both video modeling and VSDs to support communication and participation in real-word environments.
