ONEder is a transformative tool for educators, students, and researchers! I used ONEder as part of a research study aimed at teaching employment-related social behaviors to high school students in a transition program. With ONEder, students could access personalized video-based instruction and a self-reflection tool all in one easy-to-use platform. Their teacher described ONEder as a 'completely new way of teaching' across a variety of skills in a school, employment, or community context.

In 2014, The Arc of Northern Virginia partnered with ONEder to develop the award-winning TravelMate program, which provides virtual support to individuals with cognitive challenges, helping them to be more independent in using the bus, train, and other forms of transportation. Twenty two of the trainers reported on the nature and level of competence in travel achieved by their 104 trainees. They found that:
of individuals were able to travel more independently and required less assistance when using public transport after the training.
of individuals were able to travel completely independently using public transportation after the training.
of the trainers reported that TravelMate was the most important and useful resource they received at the training.
When the Arc of Northern Virginia created a TravelMate curriculum using the ONEder special education platform, we saw an eight-fold increase in the number of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) who were serviced by our partner organizations. Almost 100% of program participants increased their ability to travel independently to and from work with less support, while nearly half increased their ability to travel independently alone with TravelMate.
ONEder has been an invaluable tool in our clinic for training, teaching new skills/concepts, and as a therapy tool. We are using it with clients of all ages and disability conditions. The ability to create one set of materials and then share it between therapists and to multiple clients has been an initial time saver. Once assigned, we are able to customize the lesson to the needs of the client, and add therapy goals for data collection, with minimal effort and time. Being able to customize data is an essential element in our practice.
ONEder allow Burlington educators to spend less time on paperwork, and more [hours] in the classroom. Burlington is taking an important step towards moving beyond the ‘de minimus’ requirement outlined in 2017's supreme court ruling.
