The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of video-modeling on engagement of a student with Autism Spectrum Disorder. This was a six-week case study broken down into three cycles that measured the number of prompts as well as the amount of time a student with ASD required to complete a vocational task. After initial baseline data was collected, video-modeling was introduced using an iPad. The student then used video-modeling to assist with completion of three different vocational tasks. The researcher used a data-collection chart to record the number of prompts and total time the student required each day. The findings revealed that engagement was slightly higher at the end of each cycle when compared with engagement at the beginning of each cycle. The use of video-modeling benefitted the participant in this study, but investigations should continue with a larger group.
