Description

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a successful educational method for developing social and communication skills in children with autism. The use of video modelling in ABA programmes has demonstrated great effectiveness in teaching behavioural skills to autistic children, and this book explains how and why.

Video modelling is an easy-to-use behaviour 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.

Video Modelling and Behaviour Analysis will be a welcome addition to the practical literature on autism interventions for parents of autistic children and the professionals working with them.

Reviews

'The studies demonstrate the authors' commitment to a thorough understanding of the technology of learning that takes place in the use of video modelling as well as their passion for putting the technology to use to serve people with autism.'
- American Psychological Association (APA) Review of Books

'Learning outcomes are explicit and achieved and one is left in little doubt of the value of this form of modelling in the promotion of social skills in children with autism. It is refreshing to see the researched evidence for its success and to appreciate a step by step guide in the setting up, establishing and assessment of its effectiveness.'
- Accord Magazine

'This is a book which would be of interest to those who are engaged in work with children and autism and those who are comfortable with the use of creative tools/the third dimension in their work.'
