Me Going Places video features children,
ages 2-8, involved in activities in the community. It is designed
to familiarize children with locations that may be challenging,
and to help teach appropriate behavior in these locations
through peer modeling. Each scene lasts between 2-4 minutes,
depending on the chapter. At the end of each chapter is a
storyboard summarizing the locations shown.
This video is narrated with music by Rachel Rambach, a
Board-Certified Music Therapist, and contains a score developed specifically
for Model Me Going Places. This unique
merger of video modeling and music therapy is designed to
help teach skills in a way that appeals to the strengths of
children with developmental disabilities.
Graphics and music are used to make the video appealing to
children with Autism, Asperger Syndrome, and Nonverbal Learning
Disorders. A high production value helps keep the child's
interest so that he or she will want to watch many times.
Includes insert with song lyrics.
Run Time: Approx. 42 min.
Recommended for ages 2-8
* Designed for children with ASD but appropriate for preschoolers
