The present study was designed to compare the effectiveness of video modeling with in vivo modeling for teaching developmental skills to children with autism. A multiple baseline design across five children and within child across the two modeling conditions (video and in vivo) and across tasks was used. Each child was presented two similar tasks from his or her curriculum; one task was used for the video condition, while the other was used for the in vivo condition. Video modeling consisted of… Expand

Analysis of Live Modeling Plus Prompting and Video Modeling for Teaching Imitation to Children with Autism
Previous researchers have demonstrated that training in imitation can significantly improve the learning capabilities of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and that childrenExpand
Generalized Effects of Video Modeling on Establishing Instructional Stimulus Control in Children With Autism
Video modeling has been suggested as a powerful treatment tool that has concentrated on increasing a variety of skills in children with autism. However, it has rarely been examined as a behavioralExpand
A comparison point of view video modeling and video self-modeling for preschool-aged children with autism spectrum disorder
Video modeling interventions have been recognized as effective and evidence-based behavioral interventions for individuals with autism spectrum disorders; however, the effectiveness of differentExpand
Comparison of Video and Live Modeling in Teaching Response Chains to Children with Autism
Research has shown that video and live modeling are both effective in teaching new skills to children with autism. An adapted alternating treatments design was used to compare the effectiveness andExpand
Teaching Social Skills to Children with Autism using Point-of-View Video Modeling
Video-modeling (VM) is a widely used instructional technique that has been applied to the education of children with developmental disabilities. One form of VM that lacks in-depth analysis isExpand
Strategies for teaching children with autism to imitate response chains using video modeling
Abstract Video modeling has been found to be an effective procedure for teaching a variety of skills to persons with autism, however, some individuals do not learn through video instruction. TheExpand
Enhancing Conversation Skills in Children with Autism Via Video Technology
Results indicated no overall difference in rate of task acquisition between the two conditions, implying that children who were successful at learning from video in general, learned equally as well via both treatment approaches. Expand
The Comparative Effectiveness of Portable Video Modeling vs. Traditional Video Modeling Interventions with Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Newly developed technologies are being incorporated into treatments for children with autism but there is only limited research examining how this affects child outcomes. In the present study, aExpand
Variability in the Effectiveness of a Video Modeling Intervention Package for Children With Autism
Video modeling is an evidence-based instructional strategy for teaching a variety of skills to individuals with autism. Despite the effectiveness of this strategy, there is some uncertainty regardingExpand
Using Point-of-View Video Modeling to Teach Play to Preschoolers With Autism
This study evaluated the effectiveness of point-of-view video modeling in teaching selected toy-play skills to two preschoolers with autism. This type of modeling involved the experimenters carryingExpand


Self-modeling: Rapid skill training for children with physical disabilities
After more than three decades of studies, video is still a vaguely understood medium for training. In this study, self-modeling (self-observation of videotapes that show only adaptive behavior) wasExpand
Procedures for Teaching Appropriate Gestural Communication Skills to Children with Autism
Four children with autism were taught to use gestures in combination with oral communication and generalization measures indicated that the children learned to respond in the presence of novel stimuli and a novel setting. Expand
Learning through observation: The effects of peer modeling on acquisition and generalization in autistic children
The purpose of this study was to systematically determine whether lowfunctioning autistic children could learn through observation by the use of a peer modeling procedure, and results indicated that all four children learned through observation of their peer model. Expand
Teaching autistic children conversational speech using video modeling.
Video modeling shows much promise as a rapid and effective procedure for teaching complex verbal skills such as conversational speech among autistic children. Expand
Peer versus adult models and autistic children's learning: Acquisition, generalization, and maintenance
This study compared the effectiveness of a peer model and an adult model in teaching an expressive language task to four autistic boys and indicated that all children learned through observing the peer and adult models. Expand
An analysis of observational learning in autistic and normal children
The results showed that the majority of the autistic and the youngest normal children acquired only some limited features of the observational situation and chronological age was related to the amount of learning through observation in the normal children but not in the autistics. Expand
A review of self modeling and related interventions.
Abstract About 150 studies exist in print, examining the use of self modeling (mostly in the video medium) in a variety of training and therapeutic applications. Evidently, two lines of thoughts haveExpand
Normal peer models and autistic children's learning.
This investigation systematically assessed whether autistic children's learning of discrimination tasks could be improved if they observed normal children perform the tasks correctly and found that when normal peers modeled correct responses, the autisticChildren's correct responding increased dramatically.

Kindergarten children were allowed to control the presentation of a series of "novel" and "familiar" visual stimuli (black and white figure drawings) and it was found that Ss spent significantly more time observing the novel as opposed to the familiar stimuli. Expand
Action-concept learning in retarded children using photographic slides, motion pictures, sequences, and live demonstrations.
The highest adjusted posttest score was yielded by an instructional program in which motion picture sequences were used, significantly more effective than two paralled programs, one using photographic slides, and the other using live demonstration by a teacher. Expand
