Abstract:

With skill deficits in communication, social and behaviors, many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often have difficulties developing autonomy throughout their life. A lack of autonomy among individuals with ASD has been a primary concern of their parents or families. Therefore, researchers and practitioners have focused on promoting daily living skills of the individuals with ASD to lessen the concerns of their parents or families. This study reports an examination of multiple types of intervention for improving daily living skills of individuals with ASD. A total of 57 single-subject research studies (N=575 participants) were included in this study. Included studies were evaluated to determine the overall quality of the evidence for each design within each article, adopted from Maggin, Briesch, and Chafouleas criteria (2012). The impact was analyzed across participant age, participant diagnosis, description of the independent variable, description of the dependent variable, setting, intervention context, and the implementer characteristics using TauU nonparametric effect size. Limitations and implications for future researchers are discussed.
