Teaching children with autism to share using video-based interventions Mark, Landa Lea

Abstract

Sharing is a fundamental social skill young children learn during play. Children with autism have a constellation of deficits which contribute to difficulty sharing. Previous research indicates that video-based interventions can teach social and play skills to this population. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of video-based interventions to increase positive sharing behavior and decrease sharing-related problem behavior in two children with autism. The results suggest that, for one participant, video feedback was associated with positive changes in behavior. Some support was found for video modeling that occurred immediately prior to the target activity for a second participant, despite multiple treatment interference. The results are discussed in the context of previous and future research and implications for practice.
