Abstract

All areas of life require time management, but those skills are especially integral and require a different level of accountability for an individual to be successful in academia or when employed (DiPipi-Hoy et al., 2009; Macan et al., 1990). A study by Janeslätt et al. (2015) measured daily time management of adults and found individuals with cognitive disabilities possessed low daily time management skills compared to neurotypical peers. In a study by Button et al. (2019) the majority of college students with disabilities at one university who sought out support services spent most of their time working on the area of time management. A potential way to address these deficits is a new trending tool to assist students with disabilities to improve time management skills, wearable and mobile assistive technology. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a vibrating smart watch (Apple Watch® Series 6) using preprogrammed calendar events to improve the time management skills of students with disabilities.
