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 modeling represents an instructional approach that has emerged as an effective and efficient method to teach daily living skills for students with ASD and can be utilized in face-to-face arrangements as well as via telehealth models. This webinar will describe a variety of types of video-based interventions, highlight the benefits of using specific types of video models, and provide participants with strategies to implement video modeling effectively in a variety of settings including telehealth. Topics to be discussed include (1) pinpointing target behaviors, (2) identifying performance aims, (3) creating videos, and (4) implementation tips and tricks.

Target Audience: Professionals for whom the topic is within their scope of practice. We welcome students and others who are also interested in the topic to join us.
