Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a successful educational method for developing social and communication skills in children with autism. The use of video modeling in ABA programs has demonstrated great effectiveness in teaching behavioral skills to autistic children, and this book explains how and why. Video modeling is an easy-to-use behavior modification technique that uses videotaped rather than ?live? scenarios for the child to observe, concentrating the focus of attention for the child with autism and creating a highly effective stimulus for learning. Video Modelling and Behaviour Analysis provides a practical introduction to the technique, its objectives, strategies for use and evidence of its success. Illustrative case examples are supported by detailed diagrams and photographs, with clear, accessible explanations.
