Research has shown that utilizing video models and video prompts have been shown to be effective in behavior change for individuals with autism. There are many benefits to utilizing this type of teaching strategy. Increasing communication, downtime skills and social skills are only a few of the behaviors that can be impacted. In order to use a model to teach new behaviors, individuals must have pre-requisite skills including the ability to attend to a model and imitate actions. If unable to demonstrate these skills, the individual must first master these prerequisites prior to exposure to model prompting procedures (Cooper, Heron, & Heward, 2007).
