O’Neill, T., Light, J., & McNaughton, D. (2018, July). Video communication technology promotes participation in community activities by an adolescent with autism: Case study. 

O’Neill et al. (2018) Poster

  • 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.
