This workshop examines video modeling as an evidence-based method of improving social skills in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Children with ASD often have social skills deficits that interfere with success. Video modeling has been found to be an efficient and effective method of teaching social skills to children with ASD. We address how to implement a video modeling program, pairing video modeling with other social skills training approaches, and strategies for generalization of skills.
