Limited Capacity seats available

This study uses a single subject alternating treatment design to compare Embedded Instruction (EI) and Discrete Trial Training (DTT) on functional skills for students with Intellectual Disabilities. The DTT intervention will teach the functional skills in its traditional format (Lovaas, 1987) across 10 trials, in a segregated setting. The EI intervention will differ by embedding the functional skills in a multimedia literacy story created on an iPad, in an inclusive setting. During the EI intervention each skill will also be embedded for a total of 10 trials. All intervention sessions will be randomized across students and outcomes will be compared.

Learning Objectives:

1. This presentation will be relevant to practitioners and researchers that serve students with Intellectual Disabilities. 
2. The specific practices of DTT and EI will be introduced and data will be reported to show student performance.
3. Participants will be introduced to the current literature in DTT, EI, as well as shared stories with students with Intellectual Disabilities. 
4. The presentation will show professionals how to use EI when teaching functional skills through an enhanced individualized multimedia literacy story. This presentation will demonstrate how to embed discrete trials into a literacy activity on the iPad. 
5. The generalization of the findings from the study will be discussed regarding the ability to replicate (or teach) the intervention to the families of the participants.
