Seeing Is Believing describes video self-modeling (VSM), a truly promising technique that anyone with basic video equipment can use to help children and adults with autism and other developmental delays improve skills and behavior. The process of VSM involves filming and editing footage to create a video that depicts the person's best, ideal performance of a skill, and then having him view it. It offers a positive and confidence-boosting experience that often yields immediate and long-lasting results in a targeted skill or behavior area, including math and reading, social interaction, transitioning, and verbalization, to name just a few. And, it can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as a complement to applied behavior analysis and other interventions.
