Abstract: This project explored the feasibility and efficacy of virtual reality (VR) to improve job-interviewing skills of high school students with ASD. Job interviewing training is part of transition planning and school to work curriculum, however, this project explored whether VR would be a valuable addition to the current curriculum. Preliminary results show an overall trend towards improvement in answers, turns taken, and minutes engaged in the interview.
