Researchers have previously shown that video prompting can promote vocational skill acquisition for students with autism, and in a prior study, we demonstrated a model to train a paraprofessional to implement this practice. In this study, we evaluated (a) the degree to which the paraprofessional generalized implementation to new students and situations, and (b) the degree to which his implementation resulted in participants acquiring a vocational skill. The paraprofessional implemented the video prompting procedure with high fidelity without any additional training, and all three participants mastered the photocopying skill and generalized their implementation. These results suggest that focused coaching on video prompting implementation with one student may enable paraprofessionals to effectively generalize implementation when targeting similar skills with other students.
