Visual Support Strategies to Teach Recreation and Leisure Skills to Adults with Developmental Disabilities (Jeff Chan)

Recreation and leisure skills are an important part of everyone’s daily lives. These skills are important for rest and relaxation as well as improving one’s quality of life. Three studies assessing the effectiveness of visual support strategies to teach recreation and leisure activities to adults with developmental disabilities will be presented. In Study 1, we taught an adult with Down Syndrome three activities (painting a picture, listening to music on an iPod, and taking pictures) using a video prompting procedure. In Study 2, we utilized a picture schedule intervention to teach three adults with intellectual disability to use an iPad in order to play Angry Birds. In Study 3, we taught three adults with disabilities to play Fruit Ninja with a video modeling intervention. Results suggest that visual strategies of instruction are an easy and efficient way to teach new skills to adults with disabilities. Practical implications of this line of research and future directions will be discussed.

An Intro to RFT

Fantastic presentation and content. Liked the frequent learning checks to be sure we could understand what was being taught. Nice format too. Very easy to use. I loved this course and look forward to more!

Easy to follow

RFT was confusing to me when we went over it in class. After going through these lessons, it seemed so much clearer!

The introduction to RFT module was an excellent resource. The material was appropriately paced, and presented well. Follow-up activities helped reinforce the material presented. Overall an excellent learning tool!

Great learning experience! much better than a textbook =.)

Great instructional design and fun!

Super enjoyable module that is well structured, fun, fast-paced, informative, and clear! This module is laced with humor that I think most BCBAs would enjoy. Everything is broken up into small chunks with tons of active student responding incorporated within to keep the pace fast and engaging. I was actually a little sad when it was over!
