Seeing is Believing

seeingSeeing is Believing by Tom Buggey, Ph.D

(XIN Bugge 2009)

Video self-modelling (VSM) is a proven and effective method for teaching  skills and behaviours to people with autism. The technique uses home-made videos (created by parents, teachers, or therapists) to demonstrate a desired behaviour. The key feature of any self-modelling video is that the person modelling the behaviour in the video is the same person watching the video. VSM allows a person with autism to see himself performing the very skill he is trying to learn.
