Video Modeling

Video Modeling is one of my favorite therapy techniques. Simply put, video modeling is the presentation of a person performing a targeted skill using video technology. This is a technique that’s been around since the 80s, but with the proliferation of video recording devices, it’s starting to be used more frequently.

To understand it better, let’s talk about what video modeling is NOT. These are not videos of people “doing stuff” without scripts or guidance from professionals. They are not models of consequences of non-desired behaviors (i.e. pushing a student and getting put in time out). These are not mass-produced videos or television programs (i.e. educational television).

 

Video models are videos of desired behaviors. They are individualized models AND target very specific learning experiences. Most importantly, video modeling is an empirically supported intervention technique.

Video models can be used by a variety of disciplines and can target a variety of skills, ranging from motor behaviors and functional skills, to communication and pragmatic language skills.

Video models are easily individualized and can be low-cost to make. They can be created quickly, and shared with family and other therapists via email, text messaging, and YouTube.

I use video modeling frequently, and have begun posting some examples I’ve made on YouTube for my parents to access at home (search for Preston Clay Hadden under Channels on YouTube).  Below are some examples of videos my graduate student and I have made. If you’re not a therapist or haven’t seen this technique before, these videos may feel a little robotic and stilted. Just know that they can work. Feel free to try them out.
