Teaching new behaviors or skills to children with autism can be slow and difficult. Therefore, it is important to identify the most effective and efficient procedures for establishing new skills. Modeling techniques have been demonstrated to be effective for teaching children with autism a variety of skills. More recent literature has indicated that video modeling techniques may be easier and more cost effective than in vivo modeling, and video modeling may result in high rates of success in establishment and maintenance of new skills. The present study assessed the effectiveness and efficiency of in vivo and video modeling to establish short play-skill chains. Results of this study indicate that video modeling procedures were more efficient for teaching a child with autism to build a Lego® toy construct.
