Abstract or Description

This presentation will review a single-case research pilot study on the use of I-Connect, a free self-monitoring application for mobile devices, to improve on-task study behaviors for a college student with intellectual disability attending an inclusive postsecondary education program at a Georgia university. The study viewed the effects of a trained peer mentor providing ongoing training and encouragement for app use as well as weekly goal-setting and review support sessions. Findings of the pilot study will be discussed.
