Using video VSDs to increase participation during community activities (O’Neill et al., 2018)

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.

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.
