We evaluated a video-based error correction procedure for teaching four adults with developmental disabilities to set a table. Video clips were initially used as an antecedent prompt. However, only one of the adults learned to set the table with this procedure. Consequently, the remaining three adults received intervention in which the video clips were also used as part of an error correction procedure. Specifically, if the participant did not complete the step correctly after an initial viewing of the video clip, they were prompted to watch the same video clip a second time and the trainer completed that step of the task if necessary. All three adults reached 100% correct on the task analysis when the error correction procedure was implemented. This error correction procedure may be useful for individuals who fail to learn with video prompting alone.
