Effects of Video Modeling on Young Children With Disabilities: A Research Synthesis

The purpose is to present the findings of a meta-analysis on the effects of video modeling on young children with disabilities as published in the literature from 1990-2013. Descriptions of what video modeling is, the types of video modeling, how video modeling has been used with young children with disabilities, and calculations of the effects of those interventions will be presented. After this session, participants will be able to: ? identify what video modeling is; ? identify the differences between the four different types of video modeling; ? describe how video modeling has been used with young children with disabilities as defined in the literature; ? summarize the overall effect that video modeling has had when used as an intervention with young children with disabilities in quantitative experimental single subject design research studies published in peer reviewed journals from the years 1990 through 2013; and ? describe strategies that professionals who work with young children with disabilities can utilize when implementing video modeling in inclusive settings.
