Kathryn Haughney, Ph.D.

Kathryn Haughney, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Elementary and Special Education, co-authored an article that appeared in the Journal of Special Education Technology. โ€œThe effects of a computer-aided listening comprehension intervention on the generalized communication of students with autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability,โ€ details a computer-aided listening comprehension intervention package that supported both comprehension and communication goals for three students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual disability (ID).

The students with ASD and ID who participated in the study increased both listening comprehension and communication skills, while showing an increase in generalizing communication turns to interactions with their peers without disabilities. All three participants experienced concurrent growth between the dependent variables, implying a connection between text-based listening comprehension and communication outcomes.
