This study examined the use of an iPhone and the List Recorder Application to teach three adolescents with autism spectrum disorder to acquire, maintain, and generalize interpersonal daily living skills (DLS) in a community setting. A multiple probe design across participants was used to teach participants to use interpersonal DLS to order and purchase coffee and a snack. All three participants demonstrated an increase in their use of interpersonal skills in the community. Participants were able to maintain these skills once the intervention was removed during follow-up and to generalize these skills to a novel community setting. Results indicate that the use of mobile technology can effectively be used to teach DLS, inclusive of interpersonal skills, entirely in a community setting.
