Many individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) experience impairments in daily living skills, hindering the level of independence achieved in adulthood. Considering activities of daily living comprise a skill area critical to enhancing independence, using effective and efficient instructional methods to teach these skills proves essential for individuals with ASD.

This webinar will describe a variety of types of video-based interventions, highlight the benefits of using specific types of video models, and provide participants with strategies to implement video modeling effectively in a variety of settings. Topics to be discussed include (1) pinpointing target behaviors, (2) identifying performance aims, (3) creating videos, and (4) implementation tips and tricks.

There will be an opportunity to post questions for the presenter during the live webinar.
