There is increasing interest in the use of technology in supporting individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This review examined single-case studies investigating the use of technology to support self-management interventions for individuals with ASD.
The studies were assessed against the What Works Clearinghouse standards (Institute of Education Sciences 2014) for methodological rigor. Twelve studies met inclusion criteria, and treatment effects were calculated using the percentage of non-overlapping data (Scruggs et al. Remedial and Special Education, 8(2), 24-33, 1987).
Results showed that the use of technology to support self-management interventions is effective for individuals with ASD. Furthermore, this review highlights a need for more rigorous studies to ascertain the efficacy of the use of technology to support self-management for individuals with ASD outside school settings.
