Video Preference Assessment of Students with Autism for Watching Self, Adults, or Peers
Mechling, Linda C.; Moser, Sara V.
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v25 n2 p76-84 2010
The preferences of students with autism for watching themselves, a familiar adult, or a familiar peer in video recordings were examined. A multi-stimulus video preference assessment was used to evaluate the preferences of five students with autism. Three video options of a preferred activity (e.g., vacuuming) or daily/routine activity (e.g., snack time) were available to students via a computer-based program. Results showed that collectively there was minimal difference between the three video choices across the five students. However, in their individual scores, preferences varied among the students and activities, providing a framework for discussion of individual preference assessments when using video for instructional programs and reinforcement of task performance and behavior. (Contains 3 figures and 3 tables.)
