Video modeling is an evidence-based practice for teaching behaviors and chains of behaviors to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The purpose of this study was to determine whether the viewing perspective of these models played a role in influencing a learner’s acquisition of the target behavior or behaviors.

Video models from both viewing perspectives were provided to the learner with no additional prompting other than brief verbal acknowledgement of a step’s completion.
