This investigation examined the ability of four adults with moderate intellectual disability to complete multi-component tasks using continuous video modeling. Continuous video modeling, which is a newly researched application of video modeling, presents video in a "looping" format which automatically repeats playing of the video while the individual completes a task. Four adult males, ages 29 to 35 years, with a diagnosis of Down syndrome and moderate intellectual disability, were participants in the study. A multiple probe design across three sets of multi-component tasks (folding multiple sizes of towels; sorting an assortment of recycling materials; preparing a buffet table with multiple serving stations) was used to evaluate the effectiveness of continuous video modeling. Overall results suggest that this newly explored method for presenting video models was an effective presentation mode for three of the four participants and for one participant when completing two of three tasks.
