Workplace Acclimation for the Neurodiverse (WAND)
WAND is an app that combines proven behavior analytic techniques with AR technology to break down workplace tasks into manageable chunks of information, giving individuals with moderate to high functioning autism the support they need to work in roles they may not otherwise have access to.
With Target as our demo workplace, we designed the WAND app with four BCBA pillars in mind:
PRIMING: Where the user is able to preview the task before undertaking it.
PROMPTING: Where the user is given prompts and stimuli to complete desired behavior.
REINFORCEMENT: Where the user is provided with real-time feedback and goal-setting.
TEACHING MODULES: Where the user has access to after-hours training to instill confidence.
