Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the use of smart technology (i.e., Apple iPhone and Fitbit Smartwatch) on time management skill acquisition of students with intellectual/developmental disabilities who attend college. A single-subject multiple probe design was used to examine the use of the Model-Lead-Test strategy on three student’s ability to set alarms based on his or her daily schedule and then leave for class on time. Results show that all students were able to acquire the skills needed to independently set the alarms in a brief amount of time. A description of the methodology, task analysis, and results are provided.
