The Effects of a Text Message Prompt on Conversation Between Dyads with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Julia Blanco & Marjorie Charlop



Technology like smartphones and iPads is increasingly integrated into family life, offering new avenues for easy-to-implement, non-stigmatizing treatment procedures for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These procedures, which do not require special apps, can enhance social speech in natural settings such as classrooms, homes, and communities. This presentation from the 2017 Michigan Autism Conference discusses studies that have successfully used these technologies to improve the social communication of children with ASD.

Many forms of technology are now a mainstay of families, such as smartphones, iPads, computers and the like. Easy to use procedures that can be implemented on these devices in naturalistic settings are being developed. These treatment procedures are less stigmatizing, easy to use, do not require apps, and can be used with any of these technologies available in the classroom, home, and community. This presentation will focus on a series of studies using smartphones and iPads to increase the social speech of children with autism spectrum disorder in naturalistic settings.
