The effectiveness of auditory electronic prompting for children with autism in peer play settings

This study examines the effectiveness of utilizing an electronic device, or bug-in-ear (BIE) as a prompting tool for children diagnosed with Autism during peer-play sessions. BIE prompts were compared to prompts presented in person. Three 5-year-old male participants were utilized in the study. Results indicated that prompts presented via the BIE device, were not as successful as prompts presented in person.
