Activity Schedules Can Improve Meaningful iPad Engagement

I recently published a study with colleagues at Little Star Academy that evaluated how to teach children with autism to vary between different academic applications on an iPad. The study used an activity schedule (a combination of pictures that depicted various activities) and physical prompting to teach kids to do the following: (1) set a 2-min timer; (2) open and play with a functional and academic application; (3) close out of the application after 2-min elapsed, and (4) pick the next application depicted in the activity schedule (and so on).

The study is published in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (JABA) and can be found by clicking here. If you don’t have a subscription to JABA, you can view the near-final version of the study below.
