This presentation discusses the results of a pilot study using principles of Universal Design to adapt an employee handbook. The handbook, which was presented on an iBook, was adapted to participantsƒ?? reading level, included pictures, and the text was read aloud to the participants. The dependent variable for this study was the number of unprompted correct responses to comprehension questions presented after each page of text. This single case research design included three participants with developmental disabilities who were participating in a postsecondary university program. The handbook used for the study was from the university preschool, where two of the three participants were or would be working. This study helped build participantsƒ?? understanding of the expectations of the workplace.
