Many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience impairments in daily living skills, hindering the level of independence achieved in adulthood. Considering activities of daily living comprise a skill area critical to enhancing independence, using effective and efficient instructional methods to teach these skills proves essential for individuals with ASD. Video prompting, a specific type of video modeling, represents one instructional approach that has emerged as an effective and efficient method to teach daily living skills for students with ASD. This webinar will describe a variety of types of video-based interventions, highlight the benefits of using video prompting, and provide participants with strategies to implement video prompting effectively in a variety of settings. Topics to be discussed include (1) pinpointing target behaviors, (2) identifying performance aims, (3) creating videos, and (4) incorporating systematic practice to enhance video prompting instruction.
By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the benefits of using video prompting instruction.
2. Identify the benefits of using a point-of-view perspective.
3. Identify functional mastery criteria for daily living skills.
4. Identify strategies to implement video prompting effectively.
