This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty.

Youth with extensive support needs have lower employment rates compared to their peer without disabilities. Performance during a job interview is the best predictor of job offers leading to employment. The use of Patterned Behavior Description Interview (PBDI) questions is increasing in hiring selection process. PBDI questions inquire interviewees to respond by telling a story. Therefore, storytelling ability in responding to PBDI questions is important. Results of a few studies demonstrated that video-based interventions had positive outcome in improving job interviewing skills. This research aims to examine the functional relation of video modeling and video feedback across storytelling ability of college students with autism in a mock job interview setting.
