|Description:||A large number of studies have shown that children and youths with autism can improve their social skills when provided with appropriate and well planned treatment strategies. Here, a video modeling procedure was implemented with seven developmentally delayed children, using a multiple-treatment design. Each child watched a videotape showing a model and the experimenter engaged in a simple social interactive play in an adapted play setting. Afterwards each child’s behavior was assessed in this setting, while the experimenter’s behavior remained the same as that shown in the videotape. The video modeling training enhanced the social initiation skills of four children. It also facilitated appropriate play engagement, which generalized across settings, peers and toys. These changes maintained after a 1- and 2- month follow-up period. The intervention was evaluated as a time-efficient teaching tool as well as a means of enhancing appropriate play skills.|
