Effectiveness of Video Self-Modeling to Promote Social Initiations by 3-Year-Olds with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Buggey, Tom
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v27 n2 p102-110 Jun 2012
Video Self-Modeling (VSM) provides individuals the opportunity to view themselves performing a task beyond their present functioning level through the careful editing of videos. In this study, a single-case multiple-baseline design was used to determine whether VSM would facilitate social initiations across three young children (M = 3 years 10 months) on the autism spectrum. Although VSM has been found to enhance skills in younger children with autism spectrum disorders, no changes in behavior were noted for the participants in this study. The relationship between age and VSM efficacy is discussed along with other factors that may influence VSM outcomes with young children. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
