Video modeling has been suggested as a powerful treatment tool that has concentrated on increasing a variety of skills in children with autism. However, it has rarely been examined as a behavioral procedure for eliminating kinds of behaviors (e.g., noncompliance), a target that is often included in children’s support plans. The present study provid...

Background: Peer relations serve many important functions in children’s development. In autism, however, reciprocity of social exchange is missing and this has a devastating effect on the skill of relating. Recently video modeling has been regarded as an effective procedure that may offer some help. Objectives: The overall aim of this presentatio...

The main objective was the development and collection of preliminary data on the application of a new integrated clinical reasoning model (Anadysis) with patients suffering a stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA). Twelve healthcare professionals working in the neurological and the Accident and Emergency (A&E) units of an acute general hospital...
Article
This study comprised of two experiments was designed to teach complex social sequences to children with autism. Experimental control was achieved by collecting data using means of within-system design methodology. Across a number of conditions children were taken to a room to view one of the four short videos of two people engaging in a simple sequ...
Article

The use of video modeling to increase generalization of social play skills in children with autism is discussed. The possible reasons that have made this procedure so favorable among researchers and practitioners are explored. Two studies are described in which video modeling increased the generalization of social play in 6 children, and critical f...

We examined the effects of a video modeling intervention on social initiation and play behaviors with 3 children with autism using a multiple baseline across subjects design. Each child watched a videotape showing a typically developing peer, and the experimenter engaged in a simple social interactive play using one toy. For all children, social in...
Article
A large number of studies have shown that children and youths with autism can improve their social skills when provided with appropriate and well planned treatment strategies.
