The video modeling (VM) module describes the process used to collect data and target specific skills or behaviors when using this researched-based early intervention strategy with toddlers diagnosed with ASD. Specific steps are given to help parents and practitioners plan and implement the VM intervention and to monitor the toddler’s progress during the VM intervention.

Video modeling is an intervention that uses video recording and display equipment to provide a visual model of the targeted behavior or skill. VM is often combined with prompting and reinforcement to maximize the viewer’s ability to learn what they have seen.
