Please come help evaluate how beneficial moving around before working on tasks is for students with autism. We are in need of a small group of undergraduates who are interested in learning about the literature and participating in research activities. We will first critically evaluate the literature to understand what has been completed in the past. Next we will look at the graphs and evaluate them visually and statistically to identify the significance of behavior change as it relates to academic skills to determine if the changes are small, moderate, or substantial. This study is about both social validity and statistical significance in a group of individuals vulnerable to inequitable opportunities in school and life. Additionally we are open to explore other related areas as questions arise within this project.
