Stepping Up Technology Enabled Self-Monitoring For High School Students with Disabilities


The purpose of this project is to build implementation supports for I-Connect, a technology enabled self-monitoring and mentoring intervention. By building these supports, intervention teams working alongside special educators will be able to improve classroom engagement and academic outcomes for high school students with disabilities. Implementation supports to be developed and refined through iterative development will include: a readiness assessment; mobile application supports; web application supports; and website resources for dissemination and training of intervention teams. These supports will improve the adoption and sustainable implementation of this evidence-based intervention. This project addresses the Competitive Preference Priority-Evidence of Promise.
