Abstract

Promoting Question-Asking Initiations to Peers in Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Using Video-Based Instruction

The aim of this study was to promote question-asking initiations of young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Participants in this study were two boys, a first grader and a kindergartner. A multiple baseline single subject study design explored the efficacy of video self-modeling with video feedback delivered via iPads. New video vignettes of participants displaying the target behavior with peers were created and utilized throughout the implementation of the intervention. Results showed an increase in appropriate question-asking initiations with peers for both participants. One of the participants maintained the skills one month after the intervention was withdrawn. Social validity findings indicated positive results related to question-asking initiations as well as other social skills.
