Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of using augmented reality applications to identify potential food allergens. Seven individuals with intellectual disabilities participated. Participants were shown how to use a mobile device equipped with the Red Laser application to identify potential food allergens. Results indicated a functional relation. All participants readily identified possible food allergens using augmented reality and maintained the skill six weeks later. Conclusions are discussed in the context of using augmented reality applications to increase independent living skills for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
