OT can support adults with intellectual disabilities and autism, yet VM is under-utilized and under-researched by OT. This mixed-methods research revealed (1) quantitative results: with VM intervention, client performance increased while staff assistance decreased; and (2) qualitative themes from the client-lived experience: what worked, what could be changed, and where else VM could be used. Implications for OT include broadening the use of VM for ASD intervention.
