This chapter focuses on the use of computer-based instruction (CBI) for teaching persons with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). CBI is defined and described and the potential benefits of using CBI in educational interventions involving persons with ASD are delineated. This is followed by an overview of several priority issues and concerns related to the use of CBI for educating persons with ASD. Research is reviewed to consider the types of CBI systems that have been evaluated, the skills or behaviors that have been targeted for intervention, and the degree to which CBI has been successful as a teaching method for persons with ASD. This review indicates that CBI can be recommended as an effective approach for teaching individuals with ASD.
