Video modeling (VM) has shown promise as an effective intervention for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD); however, little is known about what may promote or prevent caregivers' use of this intervention. While VM is an effective tool to support skill development among a wide range of children in research and clinical settings, VM is still not used routinely by caregivers of individuals with ASD. In the current study, we examined the extent to which caregivers of children with ASD have experience with VM and explored their beliefs about using a newly developed scale, the Video Modeling Perceptions Scale (VMPS). In addition, we conducted exploratory psychometric analyses of the scale to determine its feasibility for use in assessing caregivers' perceptions of VM. In general, the VMPS appears to be an informative tool for analyzing caregivers' perceptions of VM. Caregivers held positive perceptions of VM and viewed it as something that could be helpful for their children.
