Increasing Social Engagement in Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders Using Video Self-Modeling
Bellini, Scott; Akullian, Jennifer; Hopf, Andrea
School Psychology Review, v36 n1 p80-90 2007
An emerging body of research demonstrates the effectiveness of video self-modeling (VSM) in addressing social, communication, and behavioral functioning of children with autism spectrum disorders. The primary purpose of this study was to examine the benefits of a VSM intervention in increasing the social engagement of young children with autism spectrum disorders. The study expands previous research on VSM by measuring social interactions with same-aged peers in a natural setting rather than with adults in a controlled clinical setting. Intervention and maintenance effects were measured in addition to the social validity of the VSM procedure. The results of the VSM intervention are provided, and implications for practice and future research are discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
