Research presented at the 2020 Georgia Educational Research Association Conference, virtual conference.
A preliminary search of the literature has revealed very few studies applicable to self-monitoring behaviours in college-aged individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), a technique that has been studied primarily in the elementary aged population. Learning how to self-monitor, whether it is self-monitoring behaviour or using it to learn to do tasks, is an important skill for one to become a success in college and during adulthood. This skill may allow some students to seek out and successfully complete further education and vocational training. Having individuals with disabilities able to join the workforce and advanced educational opportunities will increase their visibility, increase their opportunities for community involvement, and hopefully reduce stigma against people with disabilities. Unfortunately, there are significant gaps in the literature on self-monitoring for students with IDD who are attending post-secondary institutions. This presentation will provide an update on the current status of research on this topic as well as discuss the future directions.
