Research has shown that both graduated guidance and video modeling are effective teaching procedures. These methods have been utilized to teach individuals a variety of skills including play skills, social skills, and academic skills. The purpose of this study was to replicate Fink's thesis by comparing graduated guidance and video modeling as teaching methodologies in instructing two participants to complete Lego construction tasks. One individual learned the Lego task in fewer trials with graduated guidance as the teaching procedure and video modeling was a slightly more effective procedure for the other individual. These results echo Fink's: both procedures are effective, however further research is necessary to determine why a person might respond better to one procedure over the other.
