Technology is always evolving, and it is difficult to keep up with all the latest and greatest websites, techniques, apps and curricula. Luckily, this is something I love to do and I will do my best to deliver the most up-to-date information to you! Not only will you learn about research- validated video modeling, you will also learn how to build your video library from free internet sites and make your own videos. Participants will also learn how to systematically break down videos in order to highlight important social expectations in different environments. If you can visualize the behavior, you will have better success replicating that behavior!
I will show you how to make digital comic strips, story boards, sequencing cards and more in order to expand upon the behaviors and language used in the video and aid in generalization. Because if it doesn’t carry over into the natural environment, then what’s the point, right?
Please join me on Friday, July 8, at 11 a.m. and learn more about integrating this motivating, research-validated, evidence-based measure into your treatment of social skills and behavior. Register here!

As a precursor to this session, we would like to provide you with a special look at the article Video Modeling: Teaching Through the Box, which was published in the winter 2010-2011 edition of the Autism Advocate, the Autism Society’s quarterly publication available only to members.
