The video model method is an application with evidence basis, defined as watching and taking as a model the target behavior exhibited by the person on the videotape. The video model method is a teaching method that can be used in teaching many different skills to children displaying normal development and to children with developmental disabilities. This study aimed to examine and analyze studies in which the video modeling was used in teaching social skills to individuals with developmental disabilities. The present study is a qualitative document analysis. Documents (research) which were gathered according to certain criteria were analyzed by the authors. A total of 21 studies, 2 of which were conducted in Turkey, that met the criteria offset by the present study were analyzed according to the certain criteria. The reason why subjects in 3-15 years of age diagnosed with autism and Asberger's syndrome were selected in 97% of the studies and why social skills were analyzed in 81% of the studies was not explained. In addition, social validity data were collected only in 33% of all studies. This is a quite low rate for the studies focused on teaching of social skills. (Contains 1 table.)
