Purpose: Video modeling is an intervention strategy that has been shown to be effective in improving the social and communication skills of students with autism spectrum disorders, or ASDs. The purpose of this tutorial is to outline empirically supported, step-by-step instructions for the use of video modeling by school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) serving students with ASDs. Method: This tutorial draws from the many reviews and meta-analyses of the video modeling literature that have been conducted over the past decade, presenting empirically supported considerations for school-based SLPs who are planning to incorporate video modeling into their service delivery for students with ASD. The 5 overarching procedural phases presented in this tutorial are (a) preparation, (b) recording of the video model, (c) implementation of the video modeling intervention, (d) monitoring of the student's response to the intervention, and (e) planning of the next steps. Conclusion: Video modeling is not only a promising intervention strategy for students with ASD, but it is also a practical and efficient tool that is well-suited to the school setting. This tutorial will facilitate school-based SLPs' incorporation of this empirically supported intervention into their existing strategies for intervention for students with ASD.
