Acquisition and Generalization of Chained Tasks Taught with Computer Based Video Instruction to Children with Autism

Education and Training in Developmental Disabilities, v44 n4 p493-508 Dec 2009
Three elementary aged students with autism participated in an evaluation of computer based video instruction that targeted functional life skills. The effects of the software were analyzed in the context of a multiple probe design across and replicated across participants. This study represents a departure from more traditional video based instruction for individuals with autism because it combines video modeling as well as computer based simulation training in absence of any in-vivo instruction. All instruction took place on the computer and student's performance in vivo was the primary dependent measure. The participants each mastered all the skills they were taught via the computer and generalized this to the natural environment. They maintained the skills after a two-week follow up.
