Clark, Kelly A.; Test, David W.; Konrad, Moira – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Post-school employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities continue to be inadequate when compared to their peers without disabilities (Newman et al., 2011). One barrier to employment for individuals with disabilities is a lack of employment "soft skills" (Riesen, Morgan, Schutlz, & Kupferman, 2014), such as punctuality and…

Kucharczyk, Suzanne; Whitby, Peggy J. Schaefer; Mrla, Tiffany – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Evidence-based practices have been identified for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Given the co-occurrence of ASD and visual impairments (VI), it is critical that the effectiveness of these practices be assessed with children who have ASD and VI. Structured work systems have not been evaluated for children with ASD and VI. Structured…

Burke, Kathryn M.; Shogren, Karrie A.; Antosh, Anthony A.; Raley, Sheida K.; LaPlante, Terri; Wehmeyer, Michael L. – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2019
Implementation science examines the process of how programs are put into action to produce outcomes and represents an emerging approach for analyzing the utilization of evidence-based practices (EBPs) in school settings. When EBPs are implemented effectively, they result in positive student outcomes. The "Self-Determined Learning Model of…
