Description: Video modeling is a well-documented behavioral intervention used to facilitate observational learning with clients, staff, and caregivers. It also allows for a wide variety of exemplars to be used that may help promote generalization and maintenance, as well as ensure treatment integrity and eliminate drift in training procedures. Video modeling can also be used to teach students and individuals with disabilities basic social, community, and self-care skills. This workshop will demonstrate how you can use video modeling to train staff and parents in behavior intervention plans and basic behavior management using iMovie. Workshop participants will learn how to create individualized video files that can be used on a computer or converted to a DVD.
