Researchers in the field of developmental disabilities have amassed a body of literature demonstrating the effectiveness of using such technology to teach a wide variety of skills in diverse settings. This workshop will offer a review of the literature on technology-based interventions and suggestions for designing and implementing interventions in community and vocational settings.
