The study is to show if iPad application AutisMate is effective in promoting the modeling of social communication and social interaction skills in a 12 year old boy with Autism Spectrum Disorder using a single subject embedded case study. It calls attention to the use of assistive technology in school settings for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The themes explored are the independence of the boy, his social communication skills, and social interaction skills. A late theme was his non-compliant behavior in math class. Researchers found that many variables could have affected the difference on the two measures Gilliam Autism Rating Scale and Social Communication Questionnaire from pre to post tests, and further research is needed. There were no conclusive results that AutisMate had a relationship with the boy's social interaction and communication skills.
