Video-Based Intervention for Individuals with Autism: Key Questions that Remain Unanswered
Rayner, Christopher; Denholm, Carey; Sigafoos, Jeff
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v3 n2 p291-303 Apr-Jun 2009
Research on variations of video-based intervention (VBI) suggests that they can be effective for teaching individuals with disabilities a range of socially significant behaviors. Among the relevant studies and reviews, particular emphasis has been given to applications of these procedures for participants diagnosed with autism. The term "video-based intervention" is a broad term used here to be inclusive of procedures that involve presenting video footage as the independent variable for intervention. Thus, VBI conceptually includes approaches described as video modeling, video prompting, video self-modeling, computer-based video instruction and video priming. Five specific reviews were selected to provide a broad evaluation of these intervention approaches. The range of target behaviors studied is summarised and a conceptual framework of procedural types is offered. While various dimensions of intervention effectiveness have been identified, this paper underscores the fact that important practical and theoretical questions regarding VBI remain largely unanswered.
