Delano, Monica E.
Remedial and Special Education, v28 n1 p33-42 Jan-Feb 2007
Video modeling interventions involve a child watching videotapes of positive examples of adults, peers, or him- or herself engaging in a behavior that is being taught. The purpose of this review was to examine empirical studies in which video modeling interventions were applied to individuals with autism. Nineteen studies published between 1985 and 2005 met the inclusion criteria for this review. The findings suggest that video modeling interventions are effective in teaching a variety of skills to children with autism. Descriptive summaries are provided for each study. Directions for future research and implications for practitioners are provided.
