Comparing Pictorial And Video Modeling Activity Schedules During Transitions For Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders, David Cihak Jun 2010

Comparing Pictorial And Video Modeling Activity Schedules During Transitions For Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders, David Cihak

David F Cihak

This study evaluated the differential effects of two different visual schedule strategies. In the context of an alternating treatments design, static-picture schedules were compared to video based activity schedules as supports for three middle school aged students with autism. Students used the visual schedules to transition between activities in their classroom. All participants began transition more independently after being exposed to the visual schedules. Two participants reached criteria faster with static-picture schedules while the third participant made slightly faster progress with the video based schedule. The positive outcomes for both interventions are discussed in the context of practitioners’ need for ...

This study evaluated the efficacy of video modeling delivered via a handheld device (video iPod) and the use of the system of least prompts to assist elementary-age students with transitioning between locations and activities within the school. Four students with autism learned to manipulate a handheld device to watch video models. An ABAB withdrawal design was used to evaluate a functional relation between video modeling and the percentage of independent transitions by the student. The data indicate that all participants began transitioning more independently after the intervention was introduced and that their performance decreased with withdrawal of intervention. These results ...
