In a 4 year study involving dozens of participants, researchers found that the use of an iPod greatly improved the workplace performance of autistic adults.
For the study researchers paired each participant with a coach who trained them on using the program. The coach's involvement tapered off as the participant became proficient at their work.

The program used apps for scheduling reminders, with video prompts, navigation instructions, movies and music.
