This presentation seeks to provide attendees with information related to using video modeling in a school setting to enhance their service delivery with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Self-Injurious Behavior (SIB) is highly prevalent and distressing in students with ASD. Thus, schools must be prepared to address SIB. Video Self Modeling (VSM) is an evidence-based practice, but there is limited research on its effectiveness for introducing replacement behaviors. The impact of VSM to introduce the replacement behavior for SIB was examined. Overall, findings indicate the intervention had a large impact decreasing SIB in the classroom.
