This is an example of video modeling with train play. Video modeling is a technique for supporting skills of children with autism and other developmental challenges. What is modeled here is one- and two-step pretend and functional play with cars. This is an example of “point of view” modeling, where the video is filmed from the child’s perspective. Video modeling should be done with the child’s own toys (so this video is an example, not necessarily the actual video you will use with the child). Use repetition, simple language, and close-up shots. I have edited these videos with Apple’s iMovie program, but an unedited video can be just as effective. For more information, see Note that video modeling is compatible with a number of intervention frameworks, including SCERTS, FloorTime/DIR, Michelle Garcia-Winner/Social Thinking, and Applied Behavioral Analysis.
