Abstract

Since September, Suzan, a special educator, had been working on communication and socialization skills with John, one of her students who was diagnosed with autism. Suzan recognized that John had made little progress over the first 3 months of school participating in interventions such as peer modeling and verbal explanations of effective communication and socialization skills. She decided to seek suggestions from her colleagues about possible other evidence-based interventions that might be more effective for students with autism. Luckily, Suzan found one colleague who had recently attended a workshop on video modeling. Her colleague shared with her that the intervention was evidence-based and effective for teaching various skills to students with autism. Suzan was grateful for the information and was especially excited about its potential because John particularly enjoys watching television and videos.
