The current study used a video prompting plus least-to-most prompting treatment package to teach a 35-year-old Caucasian man with Down Syndrome three leisure skills. Each leisure skill was task analyzed and the researchers created brief videos depicting the completion of individual steps. Using a multiple probe across behaviors design, the video prompting intervention was introduced for painting a picture, listening to music, and taking a digital picture. In addition to video prompting, a least-to-most prompting strategy was used when the participant exhibited difficulty with completion of a step. Results indicate that the participant successfully completed steps of the leisure skills with the aid of video and instructional prompts.
